In terms of intellectual rights, the antimonopoly service must show what licensing practices constitute an abuse of rights. We need new approaches to regulation in this field — Grigory Ivliev, Head of the Federal Service for Intellectual Property..
In terms of access to digital platforms and regulating competition between digital platforms, we must bear in mind that it is primarily about access to content. If intellectual property and access to it is more-or-less regulated in our country, then the second aspect – personal data – must also be regulated — Irina Sirenko, Director of Government Relations, Rostelecom.
The digital economy is everything. And today we have to decide how it will continue to take shape as we move forward — Dmitry Afanasiev, Chairman, Co-founding Partner of Egorov, Puginsky, Afanasiev & Partners.
We obviously need more knowledge about the way this industry works, but at the same time there is urgency, because this industry evolves in a very quick way — Ioannis Lianos, Professor of Global Competition Law and Public Policy, University College London (UCL).
When we came to Russia, the system with regulation was a bit different because we created new markets wherever we went. Nobody was doing long-distance carpooling, so there was no regulation, or very weak regulation around defining carpooling — Nicolas Brusson, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Blablacar.
