Protection of the rights of an owner of the trade mark or  company name of the account in the social network ("Odnoklassniki" -, "VKontakte" -, Facebook, Youtube, etc.), and of a copyright holder

The rapid development of social networks has led to the fact that different brands are represented in them not only by the owners and users of these brands, but also by their opponents and competitors. Unauthorized use of a trademark (brand) or company name as an account in the social network is often illegal and violates the rights of a trade mark or company name owner. Existing legal tools allow to deal with such use effectively, all the more it can do great damage, including reputational one for a right holder of a trade mark or company name.
