History of the organisation
COPYRUS was created in early 2003 by famous Russian authors and major Russian rightholders with the support of the federal executive authorities - the Press Ministry and Rospatent (Patent and Trademark Agency of Russia) and of a special governmental committee which allowed to use the name "Russian" in COPYRUS’ full title (as of 20.01.2003).
Reprographic reproduction is one of the types of work reproduction, therefore, according to Article 1270 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, it can be carried out only with the consent of authors and other holders of exclusive property author rights or on the basis of contracts with the corresponding authors’ society (blanket license).
In its activity COPYRUS strives to strictly observe requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation.
Soon after its incorporation COPYRUS began the process of concluding agreements with the Russian rightholders, through the Author Associations, and with foreign societies. Also, as of 12.01.2005, COPYRUS has been giving licenses.
Control over the activity of COPYRUS is carried out by the Supervisory Council, consisting of representatives of publishers, author associations and the public authorities.
