Annotation:

Introduction: the spread of exclusive copyright co-ownership relations and the exponential increase in the economic significance of intellectual property rights create the need for a comprehensive theoretical conceptualization of the legal status of the participants in these relations, for developing a normative framework capable of ensuring a proper regulation of the exclusive copyright co-ownership institution. Purpose: to define the legal status of the exclusive copyright co-owner. Methods: general scientific methods including analysis, synthesis, specific historical method, system-based approach, comparative legal and juridical dogmatic methods. Results: the legal status of the exclusive right co-owner was found to be determined by the following factors: the co-owner’s possession or non-possession of the co-author status; the type of work covered by the exclusive right belonging to several persons; the co-authorship regime. Conclusions: the main problematic aspects of co-exercising copyrights are mostly manifested in the relations of co-owners who are participants in a mixed legal alliance. These relations should be regulated in compliance with the following principles: inadmissibility of worsening the status of the co-authors who are participants in mixed alliances of the exclusive copyright co-owners as compared to the rights of the co-authors who are participants in alliances which do not include other co-owners; the precedence of the priority rights of the co-owner being the author over the priority rights of other co-owners of the exclusive copyright.

Keywords: exclusive copyright co-ownership; co-authorship; legal alliance; co-authorship regime; derivative work; work for hire, complex object; share in exclusive right
