Russia jurisdiction report: The rules on patent opposition

The Chamber currently receives about 100 patent oppositions a year. To put this into perspective, about 21,000 Russian patents in total were granted last year, of which about 13,200 were granted to foreign applicants. Oppositions can be filed in the name of a Russian patent attorney; the interested party does not need to be disclosed at any point. The opposition fee is reasonable, at around €100 ($116) for each opposed independent claim.
