Copyright Acknowledgment

If a dispute regarding authorship (who is the author?) to an artwork arises, then the author files a claim to court which will establish the authorship to the artwork in question. Such a claim makes it possible to settle disputes and also set a precedent for application of other remedies provided by law.

For instance, an author, by establishing their authorship, may also acknowledge their exclusive right to a disputed artwork, after establishment of authorship and the legal holder of copyright to the artwork, and may charge a compensation of illegal use of the artwork, the amount of which may be from 10 000 to 5 000 000 ₽.


Only an individual or individuals (in case of co-authorship) may be authors, in which respect you must file a claim to a general jurisdiction court.

To file a claim to court demanding to acknowledge the authorship you must provide the evidence that the artwork in question was created by the claimant’s efforts. Such evidence may include drafts, sketches or preliminary variants of the artwork in question. For digital photos you must provide the original memory device to which the digital photo was initially made.
