On 16 April 2019, Dobrev & Lyutskanov Law Firm, jointly with the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, organized a workshop entitled How to organize our e-store or marketplace lawfully: legal issues of remote sales. The programme of the event covered the major aspects of the e-commerce regulation and the extent to which e-stores come within the scope of this concept. The discussion focused also on other topics, such as consumer protection rules and the exemptions from these rules, as well as the requirements of the tax legislation to the registration of e-stores and the functionality of the sales management software.

Furthermore, the workshop discussed the protection of intellectual property rights to the objects created for the purposes of the e-store and to the goods offered through the e-store. The objective of the workshop was to present an analysis of the data protection requirements to the operations of e-stores and the special rules applicable to direct marketing.
