We live in the world of technology. This technology must be correctly protected against unauthorized use. When buying any technology, parties must competently register their rights and obligations in the documents.
However nowadays not only physical properties of goods and services, but also such categories as goods branding and positioning, customer loyalty, history and reputation of a business are important. Both traditional and absolutely new goods must find their niche and target customers to succeed in sales. The means for individualization of separate goods and their producers and sellers are very important today.
The protection of authors’ rights and, conversely, the obtaining of rights to use any copyright objects have the same importance.
