Copyright for software products and databases arises after the creation and expression of the result in an objective form. The scope of protection of such objects is similar to the protection of works. At the request of the owner of the rights, such results of creative work are registered with Rospatent. For this, the developer submits an application. The documents go through the verification procedure for 2-3 months, and then the applicant is issued a certificate. By registering a computer program, the patent office certifies the rights, strengthens the developer's position and fixes the date of filing the application. This information can be used as evidence when resolving disputes about authorship and exclusive rights.
