Registration of computer programs in the Russian Federation

Current Russian legislation does not provide the patenting of computer programs and databases. These intellectual property rights are protected by copyright, which arises automatically from the moment of their creation and do not require compulsory registration. However, computer programs and databases can be registered by Rospatent at the right holder’s request.

Registration of computer programs and databases:

— Provide proof of exclusive rights and moral rights of the author;

— Facilitate the identification of the object in license agreements and exclusion of rights;

— It allows to put computer program and database on the undertaking’ balance sheet;

The most important purpose of registration of computer programs and databases is to make information about these facilities in the state register. This information shall be valid until it is proven otherwise (Civil Code, 1261). Thus, rights holders of registered computer programs and databases have a distinct advantage.
