Protection at the RA Agency of Intellectual Property Sonya Vardanyan said that the amendments to the RA Law on Copyright and Related Rights aimed at protection of copyrights in the electronic environment will be submitted in 2011.

Specifically, articles 22 and 26 of the law need to be clarified. They refer to cases when it is possible to freely use some product without preliminary consent of its author with obligatory reference to the source, Vardanyan told journalists.

“Free usage is possible for educational institutions, museums, etc. However, these provisions of the law are not applicable in the electronic environment. And the upcoming amendments will be aimed at expanding the limits of digital information free usage,” concluded Sonya Vardanyan.
