Copyright & related rights in Bulgaria


The Copyright, along with the Industrial property is one of the two basic pillars of today’s concept of Intellectual Property.

Delchev & Partners assists clients in determining whether the creation of their intellectual efforts is or can be protected by the Bulgarian copyright law. We could also advice you on economically what is the most lucrative way of granting the right of exploitation in Bulgaria or elsewhere as well as protecting your business against copyright infringements in Bulgaria.

Related rights

The development of communication especially the mass media, on the one part, and copyright, on the other part, naturally entail the emergence and development of a wide range of rights closely related to the concept of the copyright.  Namely related rights are those to complement and to a large extent contribute greatly to the popularization of works subject to copyright.

Delchev & Partners would advice its clients on all aspects of related rights concerning:

  • performers;
  • producers of phonograms;
  • producers of audio-visual works;
  • television and radio organizations; and
  • creators of databases.
