Copyright protection

Under the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works of September 9, 1886 (as amended on September 28, 1979), copyright protection emerges automatically without the need for registration. At the same time, voluntary registration (depositing) of works can help solve disputes over ownership or creation, as well as facilitate financial transactions, sales, and the assignment/transfer of rights.

Among the works protected by copyright in Russia are the following:

  • literary works such as novels, poems, plays, reference works, and newspaper articles
  • computer programs and databases
  • films, musical compositions, and choreography
  • artistic works such as paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures
  • architecture
  • advertisements and technical drawings
  • television formats, etc.

Copyright protection is available for objects depending on whether they contain sufficient human authorship.

Our company can offer the following services in this sphere:

  • litigation and prelitigation process in case of unlawful use of your works
  • protection of rights of writers, musicians, artists, web designers, and other authors
  • agreements for the purposes of commercial use of your rights
