REGISTRATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

The integration of Ukraine into the European community requires a significant increase of the role and importance of national intellectual capital, enhance the processes of entering the state into international structures that govern the relationship of intellectual property, which, in turn, is a key factor in ensuring the competitiveness of the state.

The relevance of intellectual property rights issue acquires in line with the designated process. Today, referring to the scientists, we want to remind them about the need for registration of intellectual property rights. When scientists for various reasons (ignorance, unwillingness to undergo the registration procedure) neglect the protection of copyright, it can lead to negative consequences, namely the misappropriation of their scientific results by unscrupulous researchers. This creates a fertile ground for the spread of such negative phenomena as plagiarism.

Dear scholars, we appeal to you to not ignore the protection of research results and to register copyright. All necessary information about the procedure and mechanism of state registration can be found on the official website of the State Intellectual Property Service of Ukraine (http://sips.gov.ua).
