Motor Sich wants to obtain the right to use the trademark of Mi helicopters


The Zaporozhye Aviation Enterprise Motor Sich asked the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to overturn the decisions of the lower courts, according to which the company is prohibited from using the Mi trademark (Mil helicopters). The plaintiff, which is the Mil and Kamov National Helicopter Industry Center (Tomilino, Moscow Region), also demands to recover 42 million rubles from the Ukrainian plant.


The essence of the claim by the Russian company is that Motor Sich promoted the modernization of Mi-8T helicopters as the creation of a new type of rotorcraft. In advertising booklets and at exhibitions, the designations Mi-8MSB and Mi-8MSB were used.

In this regard, the Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal of Moscow took the side of the Mil and Kamov National Helicopter Industry Center, calling the actions of Motor Sich illegal.

The terms “retrofit” and “modification” refer to the creation of a product, which means that performance improvement should be considered a new type of aircraft, not a repair or maintenance.

- says the text of the court decision.

To carry out such activities, the Ukrainian enterprise had to have permission from the helicopter developer, that is, the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, which was later confirmed by the Moscow Intellectual Property Rights Court.

    so they and helicopter engines copy Russian ones (developed in the RSFSR), due to the fact that their production was located in the Ukrainian SSR and not in the RSFSR

      how can you copy what was produced? You do not deny that the production of motors was deployed in Zaporozhye, in Soviet times, and absolutely legal? So what is "copying"?

      By the way, TV2-117, which went to the G3 and the predecessor of the more powerful and modern TV1997, was produced in Perm. Until 3. Why not produce TVXNUMX too? Is it really the Ukrainian special agents to blame that they lost their production?

      Be completely honest. They didn't copy them. The production of these engines was initially located there back in the days of the USSR, when there was not a single trace of non-profit. Well, who placed this production there is a separate question. Although at that time no one could dream of an independent "state of Ukraine" even in the worst nightmares.

    .Zaporozhye Aviation Enterprise "Motor Sich" asked the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to overturn the decisions of the lower courts, according to which the company is prohibited from using the trademark "Mi" (Mil helicopters).

    Outrageous impudence, of course. You ask, you see.

    or the authors of the note do not say something, or ... Well, then it is necessary to prohibit the use of the T-72 brand (otherwise, they began to make all sorts of T-72UA there), MiG and Su (MiG-29MU, Su-27UM and etc.) Well, the Belarusians at the same time, with their Su-27UBM, "Torahs" and "Halberds"
  5. Well this is just lovely, ah!
