“To know everything” (Continued)

In 2014, the Astrel Publishing House, as the legal owner of the trademark “I want to know everything”, prohibited the AST-PRESS KNIGA Publishing House to publish a book in its “Baby’s Library” series that carried the working “I want to know everything” on its cover page. Astrel also sought to recover compensation for the illegal use of its trademark to the tune of 2.9 million rubles. However, the dispute over trademark “I want to know everything” continues.

Some of the acts, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation supported and confirmed by already existing legal positions, while for others, it formulated new approaches to certain issues of antitrust legislation. This research report consists of a description of the most significant and interesting, in our opinion, decisions made by the Supreme Court in 2015.

Unfair competition: discrediting, misleading, and incorrect comparison

Coming into force on 05 January 2016 will be a number of significant changes to the Federal Law of 26 July 2006 No 135-FZ “On Protection of Competition”, also known as the “fourth antimonopoly package”. Among the amendments was a change to the existing Article 14 of the Law on Protection of Competition – by the addition of the new Chapter 2.1, dealing with unfair competition. The new Chapter 2.1 of the Law on the Protection of Competition has seven distinct prohibitions on unfair competition, as well as points to the openness of the list of forms of unfair competition. This analytical review is devoted to three separate formulations of unfair competition, standing out as a result of the adoption of the new amendments – discrediting, misrepresentation, and incorrect comparison – as well as the court practice that preceded the amendments, and the possible effect of the adoption of these amendments on law-enforcement practice.

Закон о ГЧП: новые возможности реализации инфраструктурных проектов

С 1 января 2016 г. появилась новая возможность структурирования инфраструктурных проектов — вступил в силу Федеральный закон от 13.07.2015 № 224-ФЗ "О государственно-частном партнерстве, муниципально-частном партнерстве в Российской Федерации и внесении изменений в отдельные законодательные акты Российской Федерации" (далее — Закон о ГЧП). Принят он был еще в июле 2015 г. и последние полгода находится под пристальным вниманием большинства участников рынка инфраструктурных проектов, а также всех субъектов РФ, которые до середины 2016 г. должны привести свои региональные законы в соответствие с указанным федеральным законом. Ключевой вопрос, возникший с принятием Закона о ГЧП на федеральном уровне, — как он повлияет на реализуемые сейчас и планируемые к реализации в будущем проекты. В запущенных до его принятия проектах, основанных на региональных законах о ГЧП, оценивается необходимость их реструктуризации (приведения условий соглашения в соответствие с принятым законом). В планируемых или уже проработанных, но еще не запущенных проектах рассматривается вопрос их структурирования на основании нового закона. О перспективах работы и отличиях будущих ГЧП-проектов от проектов в рамках концессионных соглашений читайте в этом материале.
