Intellectual property is a set of rights that arise at the author or the inventor of an intellectual property object. The essence of such rights is the exclusive ability to dispose of and allow others to dispose of intellectual property.
The objects of intellectual property are not acts of state authorities and local authorities, their official translations, state symbols, banknotes, emblems, etc., approved by state authorities, as well as messages about the daily news or other facts that have the nature of ordinary press information.
It is possible to conditionally divide all violators into 2 groups – intentional and unintentional.
Unintentional violators are those who violated copyrights without malicious intent or without understanding the essence of their actions (for example: using a photo without the author’s permission).
Intentional violators are those who purposefully infringe a copyright (for example: creators of pirated content).
