About us

INTEROCO Copyright Office - is a global full-automated electronic legal service for protection rights of authors from different countries.

Created as a fast non-government legal protection system for authors from Europe in 2006-2016 years INTEROCO provides today wide opportunities for copyright protection for the applicants from Europe, CIS-countries, Asia, Middle East and other regions.

Only in the 2017 year, the number of copyrighted works in INTEROCO Copyright Office was 59 293.

The main focus of INTEROCO Copyright Office is a full implementation of the requirements of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.

The vital concern problem in the copyright is not an announcement of the author, because it could be done almost free of charge through sending by author the created work in the sealed envelope by any post services to himself. The practice of sending a copy of your own work to yourself is called a “poor man’s copyright.” There is no provision in international or local copyright laws regarding any such type of protection, and it is not a substitute for registration.

The most important problem during the protection of copyright owner rights (in case of violations) is to provide for official bodies and commercial banks (in case of royalty payments) with a sufficient level of evidentiary form regarding created IP-work. 

According to the Berne Convention, the following main requirements are mandatory for implementation by Copyright Offices (information about the full list of requirements could be received from regional authorized operators):

Requirement No. 1. Public access 
INTEROCO Copyright Office provides an online link to the deposited item with the public access to this information (on the Internet through a special server storage), which allows to satisfy any reasonable needs of the public in acquaintance with the claimed copyrighted object.

Requirement No. 2. International publication
INTEROCO Copyright Office provides publication of registered copyright work in Germany and country of the application within 2 days after the first approval of an application. According to the requirements of the Berne Convention, for international recognition - a work shall be considered as having been published simultaneously in several countries if it has been published in two or more countries within thirty days of its first publication.

Requirement № 3. Publication after approval of the author
INTEROCO Copyright Office signs (through regional authorized operators) the public agreements with the authors and receives applications where authors confirm the permission for the transfer of work to the depository for registration issues.

The copyright certificates of INTEROCO are recognized in 172 countries of the world (members of Berne Convention). You can deposit anything that is copyrightable: original brands, mobile applications, work of sciences, literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works and video/sound recordings, including novels, poems, lyrics, songs, paintings, drawings, design, computer images, software, advertisements, logos, training materials, and even the rules of a game.

Without deposited copyright work with registered copyright certificates, it is difficult for copyright owners to assert that their materials are original, recorded in evidentiary form and predate other works. We provide a depository system allowing the creators to register IP-items with worldwide recognition. After deposition, if client is paid a special fee, we provide a hardcopy of the IP-certificate as proof that we have registered IP-works on their names.
