New Russian Patent Court May Open by 2012

A new patent court could be located at Skolkovo, which is near Moscow, where the Kremlin plans to build a Silicon Valley-style innovation center. The Supreme Arbitration Court plans to formally approve legislation establishing the 30 judge court at its next meeting, and then it will submit a final draft of legislation to the State Duma for approval. The new patent court would begin operating by 2012 working on intellectual property disputes related to manufacturing, research and development, and patents on inventions, while the arbitration courts would continue to handle copyright and related rights.
