Annual Conference “Intellectual Property Rights: recent trends, court practices, problems and solutions"


On 5 June 2015, the AEB Intellectual Property Committee held its annual conference “Intellectual Property Rights: recent trends, court practices, problems and solutions" at the premises of the Delegation of the European Union to Russia. The IP annual conference serves as a valuable platform for experts in intellectual property issues. It provides opportunities for its participants to learn about the most important issues in IPR protection through face-to-face interaction with representatives of state bodies, courts and leading legal companies and it provides an important platform for discussion.

The event was moderated by Eugene Arievich, AEB Intellectual Property Committee Chairman, Partner at Baker & McKenzie. Sven-Olov Carlsson, Deputy Head of the Delegation of the European Union in the Russian Federation, welcomed the participants. Speakers from Russian state bodies (Federal Antimonopoly Service, ROSPATENT, Court for Intellectual Property Rights), and regional organisations (Eurasian Economic Commission, European Commission) addressed a variety of topics ranging from IPR protection within the Eurasian Economic Union the exhaustion of trademark rights in Europe to the expected intellectual property related changes in antimonopoly legislation. Experts from the AEB IP Committee spoke on recent trends in court practice involving the early termination of trademark legal protection; issues related to putting into circulation; commercial concession (franchise) agreements; the problems of intellectual property rights protection in the pharmaceutical industry, and the collision of the means of individualisation in the market.

The AEB thanks the conference sponsor– Baker & McKenzie – CIS Limited.
