Intellectual property rights (IPR) allocation is currently one of the most discussed problems in Russian science and technology sphere (S&T). The epicenter of discussions is around regulations of intellectual property (IP) created at the budgetary expense. This focus is not accidental. It has been calculated that about 90% of all IP in Russia result from federal budget. The share of government in total R&D expenditures on science is still quite high. In 2001 this share reached 56.2% and it has been slightly growing during last three years. For public research organizations (PROs) – such as government research organizations and High institutes–contribution from federal budget is even higher: up to 80% of total funding. For universities– that are mostly state owned–funding from federal budget amounts to 65%.
