Court ordered operators to unblock "Glavkom" site

13.04.2021, 16:19

On April 12, the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv lifted the seizure of intellectual property rights of the glavcom.ua website. This was reported by Glavkom with reference to the decision, which is not subject to appeal.

The court ordered to all mobile operators and providers to give access to the site glavcom.ua.

As IMI reported, on March 25 it became known that on February 18 The Pechersk District Court of Kyiv has ruled to seize the intellectual property rights of domain names of 12 editions, including “Apostroph”, “Glavkom”, “Golos” and other media, and ordered mobile network operators and Internet providers to block access to the sites of these media. This decision was issued on February 18, accepting a motion from the lawyer of the former head of "Spetstechnoexport" Pavel Barbul, as "Apostroph" and "Glavkom" reported.

According to the editions, some providers and operators have already blocked the access. It happened despite the fact that on March 10, senior investigator of the Pechersk Police Department Vasyl Poplavskyi claimed that Pavel Barbul's claims were ungrounded, the latter called the reports about him on the websites to be "non-public." The same day, the investigator dropped the criminal case due to the lack of corpus delicti.

Some providers and operators have already blocked access to these sites. The blockade took place despite the fact that on March 10, senior investigator of the Pechersk Police Department Vasyl Poplavsky said the claim of Pavlo Barbul were unfounded, calling the information about him published "confidential." On the same day, the investigator decided to drop the criminal case due to the lack of corpus delicti.

Glavkom and Apostrophe filed a petition with the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv to lift the seizure of intellectual property rights to the domain.
