During the session the participants discussed the choice of the most preferable methods and level of protection for IP objects, as well as raised the topic of developing a system of measures to prevent illegal use by third parties of the company's rights to IP objects. In addition, they discussed the practice of monitoring and recording violations of human rights, the theme of interim measures, application of an injunction, recovery of compensation, etc. A lively discussion also sparked the examples from litigation in court and in the Chamber of patent disputes.
