The Website Content

(updated since 2010; retrospective content sections were removed due to exceeding the limit allowed by the rules).

The site materials include ( in addition to information about my articles and books) abstracts of current foreign publications, which in recent years have been devoted to the following three topical topics:
Improvement of methods and means of ensuring the competitiveness of entrepreneurship;
Improving the reliability of legal protection of innovations in the digital environment;
Modern methods and means of information and analytical support of the above tasks.

Last year  the site was enriched by a  more detailed consideration of using artificial intelligence technologies  to improve the efficiency of the IP system by solving the most pressing problems it faces. Some of these problems were addressed in my last article “Invasion of  Artificial Intelligence Into the Intellectual Property System” (published in the journal “Patents and Licenses. Intellectual Rights”, No. 5/2020). It explores the possibilities of using artificial intelligence in the intellectual property system with the aim of: a) ensuring equal opportunities for access to its resources by eliminating language barriers; b) a radical increase in the efficiency of the intellectual property system by using artificial intelligence technologies; c) ensuring their reliable legal protection.
