Biana Borukhovich Esq
I worked with Biana Borukhovich on a sensitive matter when it came to creating the last will and testament, power of attorney and a health proxy for my ailing mother. Biana was very sensitive to the personal element of these things, was compassionate and made my mom and me feel very comfortable with the whole process. She simplified the legal language into context we could all understand and made it easy to get the documents executed. Highly recommend working with her! Searching for the RIGHT lawyer was pretty stressful for me– Such high fees just to see if they would be the right fit for my business was hard as a start-up business. I was not sure what was the best place to start and I needed someone with the patience to listen and help me formulate the best plan for my business needs. Biana has exceeded my expectations far beyond my imagination. She is incredibly diligent, on top of her game and her prices as so fair. Biana has taken my business to a new level!! My firm retained Biana Boukhovich’s law firm to do a trademark filing for one of our products. Prior to hiring her, my partner and I met with several attorneys but each firm had some flaw or the other, either too aggressive, too expensive, too nice etc. Biana was very knowledgeable, straightforward and extremely patient. Her fees are fair and she is extremely diligent. Since hiring her office, she has gone above and beyond her stipulated contract to help us fine tune our Trademark. I am usually very selective in who I recommend but Biana is one of the few professionals I would have no hesitation endorsing.

Imprisonment for Smuggling Counterfeits?

On December 30, 2010, the National Assembly of Venezuela enacted a new Criminal smuggling law. This law defines “simple smuggling” as the import, export or transport of merchandise “without complying or intending not to comply with customs requisites, formalities or controls.” According to this new stringent law, penalties will be increased by 50 percent if the smuggled goods violate Intellectual Property rights. For example, a person convicted of the “simple smuggling” of goods bearing a counterfeit mark may be imprisoned for nine (9) to twelve (12) years. Furthermore, if Customs officials appropriate, dispose of, consume or distribute seized goods, or interfere with delivery to a competent authority, they may be imprisoned for five (5) to nine (9) years.

In addition, the new law also provides that seized goods that violate Intellectual Property rights must be publicly destroyed or burned within six months after conviction of the defendant. This term may be extended for an additional six months. The judge who presides over the case and the representative of the Attorney General’s Office must be present when the goods are destroyed. Alternatively, the goods may be donated to not-for-profit associations or institutions after removal of the infringing mark.
Are these laws too strict? Or do you think the US needs to take an example.
