Registration of a computer program

The state registration of a computer program is effected by the Federal Institute of Industrial Property (FIPS) in accordance with Article 1261 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation.
A computer program is a set of data and instructions that ensure the functioning of a computer for the purpose of achieving a certain result.

The rights to a software package may be expressed in any form, in any language and are protected similarly to a work of art.

The certificate of the state registration of a computer program is an official document in the form approved by the Ministry of Justice that assigns the exclusive right to this copyrighted object to the right holder.

The registration of a computer program is not a mandatory procedure, but it is reasonable if:

  • you are planning to sell your software package;
  • you need to confirm your exclusive right;
  • you work with foreign partners.
