The official recognition of authorship for a non-published artwork, fixing the date of the artwork creation and its deposit in the Russian Authors Society.
Why register copyright
When you face a conflict related to illegal use of an artwork by third parties or disputing your authorship in court it is much easier to prove your authorship if your copyright was officially registered. The court will examine the authorship certificate as evidence.
You may dispute somebody’s authorship by documents proving that the artwork in question existed earlier than the date of registration (deposit) of the disputed artwork, therefore we recommend that the copyright be registered and the artwork be deposited with the Russian Authors Society (RAS) as early as possible.
