According to Part 2 of Article 11 of the Law of Ukraine “On Copyright and Related Rights”, the copyright of a work arises immediately upon the creation of such work, i.e. no registration of the rights is required. However, from a legal point of view, it is important to have evidence of who created a certain item of intellectual property and when.
It is important to know that the author is the one, who was the first to create the work. Therefore, it is necessary to record the time of its creation with all the evidence as mentioned above.
However, if you wish, you can register the author’s rights to a certain work with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine and obtain a corresponding certificate.
