Protection of goodwill

Goodwill is an integral part of every company’s image. According to article 152 of the Russian Civil code all the rules of protection of individuals’ goodwill are equally applied to legal entities. In most cases defamatory information appears in mass-media, sometimes it is used in rivals’ advertisement. In any case the most efficient solution of this problem is to protect goodwill in court.  Adjudicating on this type of cases in the plaintiff’s favor the court orders:

  • to publish a refutation in the same medium;
