Our partner Mrs. Angelina Mileva introduced the audience with topics from the Law on Protection of Competition. She spoke about the forms of unfair competition and the essence of protection against unfair competition. Furthermore, within a discussion with the audience, she explained to the participants how, by carrying out their business activities, they could enter into a breach of bona fide commercial practice or harm the interests of competitors and to be subject to unfair competition themselves.
The expert of IP Consulting Mrs. Yovka Taneva took part in the training program. In a brief summary, she clarified the objects of intellectual property. There was also a discussion with the participants whether their activity or product could be an industrial property object. The audience learned what they have to do in order to protect their projects. The participants were informed about the need for legal protection when their firm strengthens its position on the market and the interest in their activity increases.
