Sojuzpatent's Patent Attorneys Larissa Yatrova and Olzhibek Kosunov participated at the 39th AIPPI Congress on July 19 –23, 2004 in Geneva, Switzerland.
More than 1 500 attendees from 80 countries registered at the Congress. Further modification of the statute to improve the Association activities was adopted. The plenary sessions discussed ongoing law harmonization issues: the questions of industrial use/applicability as the criteria of patentability, registration of “non-conventional” trademarks, database protection and the employers’ rights to intellectual property. Five interesting topics on the problems of IP protection were presented at the Workshops.
