Intellectual property suit against McDonald's to be heard in June

16:10 07/05/2013

 

MOSCOW, May 7 (RAPSI) - The Moscow Commercial Court will hear the 790,000 ruble ($25,420) lawsuit that the Russian Organization for Intellectual Property (VOIS) filed against Moscow-McDonald's on June 6, the court told RAPSI on Tuesday.

RAPSI has not been able to obtain comments from either of the parties to the lawsuit at this stage.

The music played at public catering establishments is a major intellectual property issue, Vadim Vechkasov, the legal adviser to the VOIS general director, told RAPSI in March.

He said restaurants most flagrantly violate intellectual rights by publicly playing songs without contracts.

VOIS was established upon the initiative of Russian musicians and recording companies and was officially authorized in 2009 to collect royalties for using records from broadcasters, entertainment centers, restaurants and stores.
