International copyright protection in Russia and abroad

The rights of authors of literary or other works are protected not only in Russia but also abroad. The provisions of the Berne Convention, to which Russia became a party in 1995, are used for this purpose.  In most cases, protection of copyrights of Russian citizens abroad is possible after publication of a work in the Russian Federation.

Conditions for international copyright protection

A simplified procedure for establishing and protecting copyright and related rights is possible under the Berne Convention. The following conditions are provided for this:

For member countries of the Berne Convention the fact of publication of a work in their territory is a sufficient condition for the recognition of authorship. In this case, the author or other legal owner has the right to use a special mark of protection. It includes the designation "C" in a circle (copyright), the name or names of the author, information about the year of first publication of the work.

Registration of copyright abroad can be carried out at the request of the author or right holder, if such a procedure is stipulated by a national or international act. A typical example is copyright registration in the USA:

As a general rule, the term of copyright is 50 years, after which the work can be used by other persons without additional permission of the copyright holder. Exceptions may be stipulated by an international treaty or national legislation.

Ways to enforce and protect the right

The author or other legal owner of the rights to a work may freely dispose of it, or use it at his own discretion. For infringers of these rights, including the use of a work without permission, the following protection options are possible:

These protection options can be implemented independently by the right holder or through patent attorneys or lawyers.
