More about the service

Intellectual property has a significant impact on the development of our society. Clients constantly contact Epravo with requests to protect their intellectual property rights. The scope of these requests varies from advice on registration to the full registration process and implies careful consideration of the industry and market specifics.
Why is it so important to protect yourself and conduct registration according to the laws of Ukraine? Objects of intellectual property, as well as any other types of property need protection from unauthorized intrusion.
This is why this issue is one of the most common among the legal problems in Ukraine.
Our lawyers will help you to register your copyrights on the results of your intellectual work and our lawyers will protect them in case of infringement.

Intellectual property rights: their protection and peculiarities
According to Ukrainian legislation, intellectual property objects are divided into three categories.
1. Objects of copyright and related rights (mobile applications, IT-programs, songs, dances, acting, artwork, poetry and prose, musical soundtracks). These categories are most often pirated.
Piracy is copyright infringement on the Internet. It includes illegally copying, distributing, modifying, or selling these items. Often the infringers are not only the perpetrators, but also ordinary people who browse or download content. These actions take a toll on the creative industry. Creators not only lose huge amounts of money for their work, but also the incentive to create it.
2. Scientific and technical activities (activities that are under trade secret, inventions, models, designs in the form of industrial designs, new unique varieties of plants, images of integrated circuits). These types of IP are often used without attribution.
3. Commercial designations (trademarks, commercial names and names). Unfair competition is widespread in this sphere and is used mainly for enrichment and capturing a part of the market.

There are jurisdictional and non-jurisdictional ways of protection of intellectual rights.
1. The peculiarity of the jurisdictional method is that the subject appeals for help to the special authorities which regulate the issues of intellectual property in our country. The judicial way is the most common and reliable in these matters.
2. A non-jurisdictional method means that a right holder or an author independently performs a number of actions aimed at protection of these objects. In this case, it is possible to do without recourse to state authorities.

There is a whole list of international treaties which regulate the issues of intellectual property. Among them, the TRIPS agreement plays a special role. Back in 1994, the World Trade Organization adopted standards in the field of intellectual property protection and thereby greatly simplified international trade. The TRIPS agreement describes all these standards. Additionally, it is worth noting the paragraph on compensation to the right holder and the suspension of import-export of goods in case of violation. All countries that are members of the World Trade Organization as well as those who wish to join it in the future must adhere to these standards.

How can you protect yourself from getting into trouble?
1. Register your intellectual property rights legally and timely.
2. Get a patent for the subject matter.
3. Think in advance of other methods which will help to protect yourself.
4. Take into account the specifics of your company and define a protection strategy. This is necessary in order to identify infringers at an early stage and to efficiently fight them.
