Copyright registration in Russia

In contrast to the patenting system, copyright is not confirmed by registration. For the emergence of the author's rights protection regime it is enough to prove the very fact of creation of a new work. The registration procedure can be carried out only for computer programs and databases. The firm of patent attorneys Prof-Patent will provide a full range of services aimed at confirmation and protection of copyrights.

How to confirm copyrights

Authorship arises from the moment of creation of a work and, under certain conditions, a part of a work. The law allows the author to protect exclusive rights to a published or unpublished work, but the fact of publication will significantly simplify the procedure of confirmation of authorship. Thus, instead of registration the following options of registration and confirmation of copyright are used:

The choice of one of the options for confirmation and protection of rights will depend on the object of copyright, the conditions of its creation, and other factors. The most reliable options for registration or registration of rights are escrow and notarization. The fact that a copy has been deposited or notarized can be referred to in court as evidence.

The author has the right to place a mark of protection on each copy of the work, which includes the following elements:

The indication of such a mark on the work is also evidence of the author's rights. If a similar element is placed on someone else's work by another person, the present author has the right to use any options for protection, including through the courts.

From the moment of creation of a work the author has a set of exclusive rights. In addition to independent use of the object of copyright in commercial or noncommercial purposes, the author can transfer the rights to a work to third parties - on a gratuitous or non-gratuitous basis, for a certain period of time or for good. Disposal of rights on a work does not affect the legal regime of authorship in any way. It will remain even in case of complete alienation of rights.

The registration procedure can be carried out to confirm the author's rights to a computer program or a database. The advisability of application for registration should be determined by the author himself, and the ban on the procedure is set only for programs and databases containing information of state secrets. The registration actions will be carried out in FIPS on the basis of the application from the right holder and the deposited materials.

Copyrights can be officially registered on the territory of foreign countries. For example, a simplified registration procedure operates in the USA - the author needs to fill in a simple application form, pay a fee and submit a copy to the US Library of Congress for deposit. Upon registration, a certificate will be issued with a unique identification code assigned to the work.
