The final qualifying work is devoted to a comprehensive analysis of the legal regulation of intellectual property in sports. By analyzing legislative and doctrinal sources, the author identified the legal nature and specifics of intellectual property in sports; analyzed intellectual property objects in Russia and abroad; considered ways to protect intellectual rights in a jurisdictional and non-jurisdictional manner. Within the framework of this study, the author also examines the legal regime of the exclusive right to a trademark in sports, identifies the main reasons for refusal to register them, and reveals the features of the use of trademarks during major sporting events (the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi). In the run-up to UEFA Euro 2020 (2021), special attention is paid to violations of the exclusive rights of organizers of sports events.
