An introduction to intellectual property law in the digital environment.

    We are opening a new section in which you can learn about some legal aspects of copyright in the information society (digital environment). After a series of articles devoted to this topic, a number of questions will be revealed on the features and content of the agreement on the creation of the site, on the rights of authors, the agreement on the transfer of copyright and many other legal aspects.

    I would like to ask readers to respond and comment on the relevance of the topic.

    Over the past ten years, the information society has unexpectedly widespread development, which has created new social, economic and legal problems. New technologies have had an unprecedented impact on research, education, access to culture and information. Among the important problems posed to modern society, which we are accustomed to calling informational, is the creation of a balanced and comprehensive legal framework designed to take into account changes in fundamental rights.

    One of the main problems of adapting copyright in the digital environment is ensuring the rights of the copyright holder.

    The guarantor of copyright protection in the information society should be the state in the person of its jurisdictional bodies, since only it can ensure the enforcement of these rights. Jurisdictional authorities found themselves in a rather difficult situation: a completely new system of public relations related to the use of modern technologies has arisen.

    In most cases, when disputes of any kind arise, an expansive interpretation of the rule of law is required, since the legislation does not contain the necessary references to the specifics of copyright protection from the Internet.

    Computerization in the field of copyright is a complex complex problem that must be solved taking into account the whole variety of legal, social, organizational and technical factors.

    It is known that the lack of standards that take into account the features of the Internet, and its poor controllability allow the violator in many cases to evade responsibility.

    Both national and international legislative initiatives and technological developments have quickly developed to strengthen copyright in this new environment. In 1996, two treaties were signed by the international community, signed under the auspices of WIPO and aimed at addressing the authors' primary concerns. National and regional legislators have also enacted a series of laws to this end.

    The purpose of the work is to address very relevant and controversial issues, the solution of which in the future will very favorably affect the protection of intellectual property rights in the information society:

    * The legal features of intellectual property in digital form will be examined.
    * Analysis of exceptions and exemptions from copyright. Conflicts of interest between copyright holders and users. The current trend is to reduce exceptions and the consequences that may come.
    * Analysis of the main sources of regulation of intellectual property, international treaties, conventions and their main features.
    * Learning about copyright protection in a digital environment. The main methods of protection, as well as technical means of protection, which at the present stage are the key ways to protect their rights, but also do not guarantee 100% protection.
