A new mechanism for the protection of trademarks on the Internet in the courts of Uzbekistan

Abstract: Today, the expansion of trade relations in the material space to the virtual space creates a favorable trading environment for participants. However, the development of the Internet, along with its positive aspects, has become a place of dishonesty for some parties. World-famous brands` domain names are being misappropriated resulting in tendencies of unfair market-competition. In some countries, this practice is called as a cyber-piracy, while in our country it is named as an unfair competition. While this illegal activity is regulated by the relevant legislation and court documents in foreign countries, the issue of determining its legal status in our national sphere is still remaining to be under covered. It should be noted that those rules are adjusted to the narrow meaning of the legal status and consequences of cybercrime. That is, the appropriation of a trademark in domain names, the elimination of its legal consequences, special mechanisms to prevent this (as a rule, the availability of technical measures), the legal assessment of the actions of the perpetrator, the process of discovery of such actions as a cybercrime are not developed according to the laws and practices of foreign countries. Thus, these cases are discussed in detail in the following article. Cybercrime is analyzed on the basis of the judicial practice of foreign and national courts, followed by drawing appropriate conclusions and recommendations.

COOPERATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY OF THE PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE OF THE REPUBLIC OF UZBEKISTAN TO PARLIAMENT: PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURES IN SERVICE OF DEMOCRACY

The rule of law is ensured in a democratic society through a fair, impartial and effective administration of justice. This type of administration of justice requires independent and impartial judges and prosecutors who ensure the preservation of individual rights and freedoms as well as the maintenance of public order[1]. Regardless of how different prosecutors’ systems are in different countries, they all have one element in common. Prosecutors must make decisions independently and carry out their responsibilities free of outside pressure or intervention, while adhering to the principles of separation of powers and accountability[2]. As the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sh.M. Mirziyoyev rightly noted: “Our people can endure any difficulties, but they will not tolerate injustice”[3]. In this regard, the essence of the mission for prosecutors is to ensure social justice and the rule of law.
