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.

Counterfeiting on Ebay is changing Online-Trade regulations in Europe

On July 12, 2011, the European Union (ECJ) has ruled on, L’Oreal v. Ebay, one of the biggest cases of this year, that dealt with trademark law concerning online trade.
The court in the foregoing case has ruled in favor of L’Oreal, the brand owner stating that online marketplaces can be held responsible for the infringement of trademarks on counterfeit goods they promote. In addition, the court held that Ebay should take more steps to regulate its online marketplace. These steps include:
(1) Taking action against counterfeiters where they have knowledge of the illegal activity from being put on notice by the original brand owner or their own investigation. This investigation includes circumstances where “a diligent economic operator should have realized that the online offers for sale were unlawful”.
As you can note from this statement, Ebay will be judged from an objective perspective in the future, which may be difficult for brand owners to prove. Nevertheless, having some protection against counterfeit goods is better than no protection.
(2) Another step includes protecting future counterfeit infringements by the same seller by ensuring that where a seller is working in the course of trade and not as a private seller, that the identity of the seller is clearly identifiable.
Can such a requirement cause privacy issues in the future? Or will counterfeiters learn to scam the online dealers, as do many cyber criminals? I think so, unless, Ebay enforces very stringent requirements. However, these sorts of requirements will most likely give rise to privacy issues. On the other hand, regardless of all of the un-known that this decision may bring about, this court ruling is a step in the right direction to help protect many brand owners from counterfeiters.
