RGD Counsel Participates in the IP Forum

Maria Samartseva, counsel, Head of IP litigation practice at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners (RGD), participated in the XXIII Intellectual Property Forum. The Forum took place on April 7-8, 2022 in online and offline formats. RGD acted as a Forum’s partner.

Traditionally, the Forum got together the best professionals in the field of intellectual property: in-house lawyers, IP experts, consultants and patent attorneys. They discussed main IP-related topics, protection strategies for various intellectual property objects and case-studies. 

Maria acted as a moderator of the digital session “Automation of work with IP objects and protection in the digital environment” and made a presentation on the topic “Possibilities of protecting a non-fungible token (NFT) that confirms the ownership of unique digital items, incl. obtained using software”. The digital session caused high interest of the audience. The speakers got a lot of questions from the guests. By the end of the Forum Maria launched the telegram-channel IP&NFT about IP with focus on Digital, NFT, and Legal Tech.
