      At the end of 2015, there was a scandal between a member of the popular Comedy show “Ural dumplings” and their producer Sergei Nitievskiy. The team took the decision to change their leader. However, after this began a series of courts. Until today, the parties argued over the use of the trademark “Ural dumplings”.

      In the end, the Arbitration court of Moscow dismissed the claim of the opponents Natascha. In the opinion of the judges, comedians don’t need protection. As stated by Sergey, he was willing to voluntarily transfer the trademark “Ural dumplings”, but the creative team was looking forward to the proceedings before the court.

      “This case was about six meetings. But the verdict was always postponed. I don’t understand why they wanted to solve everything through lawyers, because no one was hurt. When I was reinstated as Director in the autumn of last year, I gave the team the right to use the trademark as text, and combined, for a nominal fee of one ruble. I’m not sure, but it seems they wanted to charge me some monetary compensation,” – said the “StarHit” Nitievskiy.
