Russia trademark application is not as simple as it may seem - a growing attention to this subject matter is demonstrated by administrative and court decisions. Registration is a pre-requisite to the effective enforcement of a trademark. Anyone failing - whether intentionally or not - to register his marks would be exposed to potential losses and the inability to make any claims against acts of infringement or unfair competition.

6) Power of Attorney in the name of the applicant, stamped & simply signed by the authorized person at the company indicating full name, position in the company, date & place of signature (Notarization or Legalization is not required).
