The Court of Intellectual Rights is part of the commercial arbitration court system and will examine particular categories of disputes related to protection of IP rights as a first instance and cassation court.

The legal grounds for the Court’s operation are the following:

As a first instance court, the Court will consider cases:
on challenging regulatory legal acts adopted by federal executive bodies affecting the applicant’s rights and legitimate interests with regard to legal protection of intellectual property;
on challenging the legal protection being provided or terminated for intellectual property items (except for copyright items and items of associated rights and integrated circuit layouts).
As a cassation court, the Court will consider cases having been examined by it while acting as a first instance court, as well as cases on intellectual rights protection having been examined by commercial arbitration appeals courts.
