The Moscow office of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner has successfully represented the Prosveshcheniye publishing house in an intellectual property rights dispute against Russian publishing house Ventana-Graf, part of the Russkiy Uchebnik Corporation. The Court ordered Ventana-Graf to pay Prosvescheniye RUB 3.7 billion as compensation for trademark infringement.

Ventana-Graf produces around 600 types of printed materials containing a logo similar to Prosveshcheniye's trademark. According to the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, 80% of customers confused the brands. In the course of the litigation, Ventana-Graf admitted that its brand logo was based on Prosveshcheniye's trademark.

The Court ruled that the Ventana-Graf products are counterfeit and subject to liquidation.  

The Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner team consisted of Partner Elena Trusova and Senior Associate Anton Nefedev.
