How do contact zoos circumvent bans?
Komsomolskaya Pravda understands what has changed since the entry into force of the law, which prohibited the work of contact zoos in the shopping and entertainment center. Lawyer Yulia Martynenko explained to the newspaper why everything continues to work. “It is forbidden to contact the audience with animals. And if you organize an event with animals, they should have a place to take refuge. The new law allows pet exhibitions and events of “scientific and educational orientation”. Therefore, the contract with the shopping Mall prescribes this, – said Martynenko. – However, the state does not intend to completely prohibit the activity of private zoos. They were offered to move to separate territories and get licenses by January 1, 2022.”

Is it necessary to protect the teacher from the student?
Network edition Moscow.ru refers to All-Russian Popular Front initiative to protect teachers. The bill proposes a fine of up to five thousand rubles for insult and a prison sentence of up to six years for inflicting beatings. “Punishment can never be the only sanction,”– Nikita Filippov, head of MCBA Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”, – said in an interview with the publication. “Preventive, educational measures can have a greater effect.” According to the lawyer, widespread video recording of what is happening in the classrooms can help solve the problem. At the same time, the expert notes that “the current regulatory framework is enough to regulate the relations between teacher and student”. “Now, if a student hits the teacher, he is responsible before the law. Criminal prosecution and criminal record are serious consequences for his further fate. But the greater effect will be from the fact that public attention will be focused on this topic,”- lawyer Nikita Filippov concluded.

Also, Moscow.ru talks about the tragic incident in Irkutsk. The young man fell asleep in a taxi. The driver turned to the police for help, who decided to wake him with a stun gun. Doctors having arrived at the place stated death.
Alexey Te, lawyer of “De jure”, believes that the actions of the police officers were clearly illegal. “The procedure for using special means by employees is directly regulated in the Police Law. Stun guns are allowed to be used to repel an attack, to suppress a crime or resistance, to detain a person trying to escape, or if there is a risk that the person being detained may offer armed resistance, as well as for the purpose of suppressing mass riots. Moreover, before using special equipment a police officer must warn of his intention and provide the opportunity and time to fulfill legal requirements,”- he said. The only exception is if the delay creates a direct threat to the life and health of a citizen or a police officer, or may entail other serious consequences. But in this case, there is no question of threats,”- Te says.

Hotel business magazine publishes the author’s article by Nikita Filippov, head MCBA Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”, “Instructions: how to protect your brand, logo and corporate identity”. Despite the fact that the word “brand” does not appear anywhere in domestic law, our businessmen are well protected from those who are trying to copy their brand and corporate identity and, thus, steal intellectual property, in which large amounts are often invested.
According to the lawyer, an effective means of protecting the brand is the registration of a trademark in Rospatent. “It is worth remembering that registration is valid for 10 years from the date of application. In fact, from that moment on, your rights to the trademark will be protected and if a dispute situation arises, the court will take your side. Of course, if your trademark is unique and not a copy,”- lawyer Filippov emphasizes.
