Alcoholic and Tobacco Industry

Alcoholic and tobacco market is highly competitive in Ukraine. Due to the legislative restrictions on advertising and conditions for the sale of alcohol and tobacco products, manufacturers often try to profit from the other brand, instead of developing their own one. Such abuse of others’ reputation occurs through the wrongful use of foreign trademarks, the appearance of packaging, or by specifying misleading information on packaging.
