Where to start?

Firstly, you need to have documented evidence of the ownership of the audio-visual content, and must have the right to protect the object of intellectual property based on an agreement or law.

Secondly, you need to detect a violation, for that you need to monitor and record the infringement by a method that will be recognized by Ukrainian court ( involving the third parties with special knowledge and experience).

Note: In criminal cases, it is also important to prove the intention of the offender to commit a crime, so you must warn the offender that it violates your rights, and only after that, record the violation.

Thirdly, you must believe that you can protect your rights and we will help you in that.
