Risks of improper IP registration in Russia

Keep in mind that the lack of application or failure to properly file for protection of your IPR in Russia can result in an author’s ideas being stolen or used with no recourse. Furthermore, as patents are valid only for a definite period of time and a regular update of application is required - failure of such update can result in loss of protection and remedies for the titleholder.
