Quoting:A person having nothing to do with Microsoft, a Russian legal expert, managed to receive the official registration certificate on Windows Vista in the Federal Agency on intellectual property, patents and trade marks of Russia. He did it out of simple wish to show imperfection of the legislation system. The picture of the conforming certificate under number 2006613993 was sent to CNews. The problem is that the Russian legislation doesn't prohibit registering objects under identical names. However, according to Russian laws, such registration doesn't claim dominion over Windows Vista. Any possible problems are to be solved at the court, which will take other documents concerning authorship into account in order to define the right holder. source: [url=
