Legalisation of parallel imports

Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov supports the legalization of parallel imports. The final decision will be made in May, at a meeting of Dmitry Medvedev.

Back in 2011, the Federal Antimonopoly Service came up with an initiative to abandon the national regime for the protection of the ownership of a trademark and change it to an international one. Recall that the Russian principle requires the permission of the copyright holder to use the trademark, which is not provided automatically when purchasing goods and must be agreed separately. The international principle does not impose such restrictions.

To date, the question of the legality of using the trademark without the official permission of the copyright holder remains unresolved. Practice shows that court cases on this issue can have an unpredictable outcome.

According to experts, the lifting of the ban on the use of the trademark will lead to lower prices for the supplied goods. On the other hand, this may lead to loss of quality control.

The final decision will be made at a meeting of Dmitry Medvedev, but, according to the deputies, the initiative will receive support and soon the bill will go to the Duma.
