PATENTUS participated in the Collegial Readings 2017 conference

Date: 04 July 2017

On June 28-30, 2017, Dmitry Markanov participated in the annual research and practice conference, ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGIAL READINGS 2017, organized by the Patent Attorney Bar and Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.

At the conference, Dmitry presented a report Legal Protection of Unregistered Trademarks which arose great interest and numerous questions of the participants. In the lawyer's opinion, an unregistered trademark, similarly to a registered trademark, may be protected by law. To prove this point, the speaker cited back to the changes which had occurred following the adoption of the new norms of the law On Protection of Competition, and provided illustrations from the Russian court practice. Dmitry Markanovs practical conclusions with respect to the details of proceedings for the protection of unregistered trademarks appeared to be useful for the participants as well. PATENTUS lawyers established a good tradition of participating in the ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGIAL READINGS 2017 conference. We look forward to new meetings!
