Copyright Protection and State Engagement

According to words of photographer Paata Vardanashvili, tourism companies, publishing houses, internet websites and other private companies frequently violate the copyright, the systematic character carries the unpermitted usage of the photo works of Paata Vardanashvili, of course the usage is for commercial purpose.

Georgian Copyright Association is involved in the fight against the copyright infringement and frequently applies to the court on behalf of authors.  Though sometimes these measures are not enough for infringement elimination and further prevention. Engagement of the relevant state bodies is essential in the fight against the copyright infringement, which will activate certain legal sanctions.

According to the clarifications provided by the National Intellectual Property Center “Sakpatenti”, the state policy against the copyright infringement will be more restricted. As Manana Pruidze, the Head of Copyright Law Department says, there is planned the creation of relevant government commission. As Ms. Pruidze declares, the relevant sanctions will be effective against the facts of copyright infringement, as this mechanism is meant by the DCFTA agreement.
