Forum IP Ukraine Now 2023

13/ 11/ 2023
  IP Ukraine Now 2023, which is one of the biggest annual Ukrainian IP forums, has been held in Kyiv! We were delighted to meet IP professionals offline, hear various opinions, and achieve a consensus on key problematic issues. During the first session on November 9, moderated by our managing partner Oleksandr Mamunya, the participants, namely the President of the UA PTO, the head of IP Department of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, and the reputable Ukrainian patent and trademark attorneys, delved into the IP reform and discussed how the UA PTO is currently functioning, and its plans and perspectives. The questions of, inter alia, the prosecution terms, the re-launch of the PTO’s Chamber of Appeals, the quality of the PTO examination, improvement of the PTO online databases, interaction between the PTO and the Ministry of Economy, and the European Patent Convention were discussed by the panellists. “Certainly, its not all a bed of roses, however considering the circumstances, even small steps forward are already a good result. The overall picture depends on many factors and stakeholders. However, everyone present agreed on at least one thing – before the next forum, we should work on key performance indicators for the IP system,” commented Oleksandr Mamunya. The conference also touched upon a pressing issue: Ukraine vitally needs an IP court. And this is the prevailing opinion among industry experts. The main reasons for the delay in launching the court are obvious: lack of funding due to the ongoing war, and it is currently not on the priority list of the government. “However, in view of the need for investment and economic recovery, the launch of the IP court becomes even more relevant than before,” said Oleksandr Mamunya, closing the first day of the event. The second day of the forum was no less intense, filled with the exchange of practical experience and discussions. The issues of forensic examination, patent litigation in the pharmaceutical industry, and IP enforcement online were in the spotlight. We are inspired by the event and are very much willing to cooperate with the PTO, government and peers to further improve IP rights protection in Ukraine.
