Legal Question in Intellectual Property in Russian Federation

Inheriting trademarks


I hope you can help me!

For my degree work in Moscow State Linguistic University i need to find out some peculiarities of inheriting trademarks in the UK, the USA or other countries.

The points which are important for me are those concerning:

1. status of the possessor of the rights (in Russia to be the owner of the trademark you must be registered as a sole proprietor)

2. is the point stated anywhere in the legislation

3. some other important points of inheriting intellectual property

Thanks in advance!
