special-301According to the 2014 Special 301 Report, Russia is still on the Priority Watch List due to not resolved issues related to the Intellectual property rights protection and enforcement. As per the Special 301 the major concerns about Russian IP protection system are:”manufacture, transshipment and retail availability of counterfeit goods, including counterfeits of agricultural chemicals, electronics, information technology, auto parts, consumer goods, machinery, and other products, a decrease in raids, initiations of criminal cases, and issuances of court verdicts”
The US define the Civil Code changes that Russia has made as confusing, which is revealing the need of “more transparent and effective legal framework and enforcement strategy to reduce the sale of counterfeit goods online and piracy of copyright-protected content”. The report touches also another important issue for the intellectual property rights protection in Russia-the online pharmacies.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
