Russia opened its market for gray goods


Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a document on March 30 that would legalize parallel imports of trademarked products into Russia. Previously, the sale of such things, not permitted by the copyright holder, provided for liability with compensation, and the entire consignment of goods was destroyed.


Now the import of such gray goods into Russia is allowed.

The purpose of this mechanism is to satisfy the demand for goods containing the results of intellectual activity.

- the prime minister noted at a meeting of the commission on increasing the stability of the Russian economics in the face of sanctions.

The list of goods subject to the new law will be approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade based on proposals from various authorities. The Ministry of Industry and Trade believes that such a measure will be able to saturate the domestic market with necessary goods in the face of Western sanctions and other actions of unfriendly countries that have intensified in this regard after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine.

At the same time, permission for parallel imports does not imply the legalization of counterfeit products, since the new law implies the transportation of original products through various channels.

      Yes, the whole country uses them! Show me a person who will voluntarily give 15-17 thousand hard-earned money for a new Windows if you can work for free on a pirate? Moreover, is there a simple way to get it for free? license. Just an example.

    Well, finally! It has long been time to take an example from our cunning Chinese partners. Our narrow-eyed brothers clearly demonstrate what success this can lead to.

    There are MUCH more expensive programs than this Windows. And there, too, skillful hands worked. It is impossible to appear at customs with them in devices, and who will find them in the vastness of the globe among billions of entertainment fans? There is a ping pong board game. You can transport across the borders with empty ones, and already receive on the reverse side everything that you abandoned from the opposite side..

    Here you don't know. There is international law protecting the rights of the author. Violated patent law - get sanctions. For example, the Belarus tractor was produced in the USSR. I don't know what model. There, in the front axle (it seems so) there was not a very clean application of the design. Something French. And we gave a batch of 300 pieces to some African country for free, because to sell is to get a benefit, and right there, at the same time, an item subject to criminal prosecution appears. No benefit, no punishment. We would have been warmed to the sum. many times higher than the cost of these tractors. China was not touched, from the word at all. He took whatever he wanted from everyone. Because he was seen as a future enemy of the USSR. After Damansky and other scandals. It was necessary not to interfere with his growth. Look now. Wherever possible, he is punished in the same way as soon as the theft is found. The situation has changed, and China is no longer a rival to the USSR (Russia), but to the West.
