Talented individuals are born to create, and the world benefits from their creative drive with scientific discoveries, literary works, works of art, software and other innovations that eventually become commercialized. When entering the market, innovations need to be protected by law. According to the law of the Russian Federation, they become intellectual property.

Intellectual property consists of exclusive rights to literary, artistic and scientific works, computer and database programs, and neighboring rights to inventions, prototypes and useful models. The concept of intellectual property also includes such things as a company name, trademarks and service marks used in commerce.

A trademark is a distinctive sign that serves to individualize a product, work or services rendered by companies and individuals. Trademarks are treated as a company’s intangible property, since they have cash value (sometimes a very high value) and can be sold or leased.

Trademarks must be registered in order for their owners to maintain exclusive rights. Verbal, graphic, three-dimensional and other distinctive signs or their combinations in any color(s) can be registered as a trademark. Sounds (melodies), light and moving signs can also be registered as trademarks, but this is less common.

One type of intellectual property protected by law is copyright. Copyright is defined as a set of exclusive rights to such innovations as literary, musical, choreographic or photographic works; computer and database programs; films; works of decorative and applied arts, painting, scenography, architecture, urban planning and landscaping.
