Implementing the law is always associated with the difficulties posed by the use of justice and law, which in practice is the cause of legal claims, loss of money, defaults on contracts, violations of the rights of owners of intellectual property.
Violations of copyright, related, patent rights lead to the material and moral damages for authors and other holders of intellectual property rights. Issues related to the payment of royalties, the conclusion of copyright and licensing agreements, using the trademark without the certificate of registration, constantly emerge from the owners of intellectual property rights and are not always solved correctly.
