Opening the meeting, German Klimenko stressed the importance of such gatherings, since it is in communicating with the business community that the most relevant and effective approaches to state regulation are developed. The Presidential Adviser expressed hope that the emergence of the Internet in the field of copyright will not only create problems, but also lead to the appearance of new markets. ”It is necessary to hear the voice of business, and not to impose official opinions on it. Undoubtedly, modern technologies transform ordinary business processes. For example, with the development of the Internet telemedicine appeared which opened up new markets and provided new opportunities. This meeting was initiated by business representatives, which indicates the readiness of the industry to adopt standards, as well as to set a level playing field“, German Klimenko said.
The participants of the meeting came to the conclusion that today the problem of illegal use of domain names is relevant and requires a set of measures to address it. In order to prevent acts of fraud and reduce the growing burden on the judicial system in this regard, the Association of Internet Trade Companies proposed to consider the possibility of creating a specialized register of objects of intellectual property, containing information about all objects of related rights and copyright, trademarks, the use of which limits the delegation of domain names.
“Copyright holders will be able to add their registered trademarks to the registry if they wish, and domain name registrars will have to notify and obtain the consent of a copyright holder for the sale of a domain name when a purchase of a domain containing a trademark from the registry is requested. A similar mechanism is successfully used in the Customs system today — it is the Customs register of objects of intellectual property“, the President of AITC Alexey Fedorov said.
The head of the Federal service for intellectual property (Rospatent) Grigory Ivliev noted that the transition to the digital era requires new mechanisms and approaches to copyright protection on the Internet. ”Together with the industry community, we are ready to develop the practices that would be effective and convenient for copyright holders. We are also ready to disclose all our registries and provide any necessary information about registered trademarks for the purposes of domain name control“
