Information Technology and Intellectual Property (IT/IP)

For a successful business under present-day conditions it is not enough just to sell a good product or provide quality services, one should also be able to make a name for himself, to distinguish the company from the others. That is why entrepreneurs give a lot of attention to branding their goods and services. Interesting statistics - even branded fuel is sold better than not branded, marked by traditional trademarks. It would seem that what could be simpler - for example, to register a trademark, to create a website with the same name, to expand and establish a network under a single, recognizable brand in the future. Perhaps it would have been simple in the West. Although even there the businesses spend a lot of time and effort on courts with "patent trolls" and "cybersquatters", similarity of goods forms and the patented technologies. In 2015 our country once again was in the US Priority Watch List in the "301 List" of the countries infringing intellectual property rights. As noted in the report of the US trade representative office, three main problem areas stand out in Ukraine:
1) unfair, non-transparent administration of the fundraising system by organizations for collective management of copyright and related rights;
2) widespread use of illegal software in Ukrainian public institutions;
3) lack of an effective fight against infringement of copyright and related rights on the Internet, piracy, inadequate legislation to combat piracy and mediation in the commission of piracy.      Thus, having a business idea it is not enough simply to implement it, as competitors can not only copy it, but can prohibit its use by the author. Therefore, legal support of the enterprise and problems solving before they occur is of great importance.
