Intellectual property practice directions
Contracts and maintenance of transactions with intellectual property
The service will be of interest to both rights holders who have decided to consent to the use of their intellectual property to others (the license agreement) or to transfer all rights to it (the agreement on the exclusion of rights) and those interested in acquiring exclusive rights.
Resolution of intellectual property disputes
Disputes over IP objects are a voluminous list of different situations that businesses may face, ranging from challenging Ukrpatent’s decision to register IP objects and disputes over trademark infringement to recognizing certain actions as unfair competition.
Copyright and related rights protection
The lawsuit is the most effective means of restoring the violated rights and interests of authors and performers, developers of computer programs, compilers of databases and manufacturers of phonograms, organizers of broadcast and cable broadcasting.
Resolution of disputes is possible in court or pre-trial.
Comprehensive advice on copyright and related rights
Every day, the intellectual property market is replenished with new works of science and art, computer programs and databases. The development of technology makes them more accessible to the consumer, but at the same time creates additional opportunities for violating the rights and protected interests of authors, publishers and other rights holders.
The legal instruments currently in place provide reliable legal protection and protection of copyright and related rights in Ukraine and beyond.
Inclusion in the Customs Register of Trademarks
The service is intended for all those who want to protect their means of individualization from the appearance of counterfeit products in Ukraine.
The basis of this service is the introduction of intellectual property objects by a special customs registry for their further protection by the Customs Service.
This includes protections such as counterfeiting, counterfeiting and parallel imports.
Customs authorities have the right to detain a dubious shipment of goods for up to 2 weeks to find out the reasons and grounds for its importation.
Franchise is the transfer of intellectual property by an intellectual property owner to another person for a fee.
The service will be of interest to rights holders who plan to allow a certain range of people to use their business model, or those who plan to purchase a franchise.
Manufacturing Secrets (know-how)
Any organization has information of particular value.
This can be a recipe for a main course in your restaurant, a unique technology of production of products or providing specific services, as well as formulas, business methods, schemes and sets of tools necessary for successful business in any field or profession. In short – any information of commercial importance and unknown to third parties.
Companies planning to use a developed technical solution, a formula of a drug or another IP object outside Ukraine should not forget that patent law is territorial – that is, operates only in the country where the patent was obtained.
Domain names (registration and dispute resolution)
Companies doing business on the Internet need to register correctly and be able to protect their domain name. This service is also relevant for all persons posting information about themselves, about their activities, contact data and much more in the world wide web.
There have been increasing legal disputes over domains similar or identical to third-party trademarks.
International trademark registration
The service is relevant for those who plan to bring their product or their services to the international market under the same trademark as in Ukraine.
The existence of a patent entitles you to a temporary legal “monopoly” with respect to an invention, a useful model, an industrial design or a breeding achievement. This means that for quite some time only the inventor has the right to decide who and how can use the object he patented.
Having a large patent portfolio increases the company’s weight in the market as well as the value of the business.
