copyright protection


In Russia, the duration of copyright protection differs from that in the United States.

As of 2022, the general term of copyright protection in Russia is the author’s lifetime plus 70 years after their death. For works created anonymously, pseudonymously, or under a collective pseudonym, the term of protection is 70 years from the date of first publication. For audio-visual works, such as films, the term of protection is 70 years after the death of the last surviving author, or 70 years from the date of first publication if the authors are unknown.
