Each copyright holder, in addition to quality protection, must be able to properly dispose of such rights. So, the transfer of ownership or granting the right to use the object requires the conclusion of an agreement. Copyright agreements transparently and clearly describe the rights and obligations of each of the parties, which in the future will help to avoid disagreements and disputes between the parties.
Depending on the situations, you may need to conclude such agreements:
- agreements on the transfer (alienation) of economic rights to a work with individuals-authors of copyright objects;
- agreements between legal entities on the transfer of property rights to copyright objects;
- order contracts between legal entities and individuals — artists, designers, photographers, etc.
However, such a list is not exhaustive, since the agreement reflects the diverse needs of each of the market participants, and therefore an individual contract is created for each individual request.
Such agreements can be registered with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, and their registration period is on average 2-3 months.
