This year’s discussions were focused on, inter alia, the changes in the state intellectual property management system, the current status of National IP Office, anti-counterfeiting, jurisprudence and effective remedies during the Martial Law in Ukraine, etc.
Oleksandr Mamunya, Chairman of the UBA Committee on Intellectual Property, Managing Partner at Mamunya IP, started the forum and gave the floor for welcoming words to the IP lawyers currently serving for the Armed Forces and defending Ukraine on the front lines.
“Events like this are timely for several reasons. Firstly, it is a sign of a well-functioning economy. Secondly, such events form a general idea in the Ukrainian business environment and in the society of the value of innovations and the importance of the ability to work therewith.
And thirdly, such events shape an understanding by Ukrainian society of how important it is to respect other people's intellectual property and to play by the rules of civilized countries - given that Ukrainian army and Ukrainian people are fighting for the chance to live in a country where the rule of law is respected”, mentioned Oleksii Lukianov, Senior Associate at Mamunya IP, military serviceman.
