International experience shows that legal protection of rights is the most effective protection tool when it comes to results of intellectual activity and equated to them tools of individualization of participants in civil turnover.
Legal protection means applicant’s appeal to court or other authorities empowered by the law for the protection of their infringed or disputed rights, realizing respectively the judicial and extrajudicial (pretrial, special and administrative) procedure for their protection.
Intellectual property disputes resolution is one of the most difficult categories of cases involving the protection of their legally protected rights and interests. The following factors are the grounds for complexity of the above mentioned disputes:
- particular nature of a dispute;
- process of collecting and presenting evidence;
- correct wording in the procedural documents of the grounds and requirements;
- difficulty for an ordinary person who is not a professional in the field of intellectual property. Not always a person, whose interests are violated in any way, knows exactly where he should apply for protection of his rights, in what form and on what time.
