Copyright registration is a concrete measure under Intellectual Property Rights to reserve an owner’s unique piece of literary and artistic work. It bestows the legal right to restrict any person from any further use of the product.

Copyright applies to work that is recorded in some way; rights exist in items such as literary, artistic, musical and dramatic work as well as films, sound recordings and typographical arrangements. It gives the author specific rights in relation to the work, prohibits unauthorized actions, and allows the author to take legal action against instances of infringement or plagiarism.

Turkey is a party to Berne Convention since 1951 which is the oldest international convention regulating copyright. Under Berne Convention and Law on Intellectual and Artistic Works (“Copyright Act”), there are no formalities regarding the registration of copyright.
