A draft law amending part four of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation “on geographical indications” was passed by the State Duma of the Russian Federation on 26 July 2019 and comes into effect on 27 July 2020. For the first time, it enables protection of GIs in Russia. It was also the first time in many years that a new right has been added to Russian IP law.
On July 27, 2020, amendments to the Civil Code of the Russian Federation come into force, making it possible to register and protect a new object of intellectual property rights, a geographical indication.
