Electoral commissions, candidates, electoral associations, intellectual law, the objects of intellectual property law


The author examines the peculiarities of resolving the electoral disputes related to violations of intellectual property rights during the election campaign. Based on the analysis of current Russian legislation and judicial practice, the author proposes to widen the circle of subjects that have a right to go to court with a statement on the exchange of registration of candidates (list candidates) at the expense of holders of intellectual property rights. Also, attention is drawn to the fact that such a ground for de-registration as a violation of the law on intellectual property is an excessively strict and unnecessary constitutional sanction.
