"The Law on Intellectual and Artistic Works 5846” in Turkey covers the moral and financial rights of authors who create the works and performers who perform or interpret works, phonogram producers and broadcasting organizations, utilisation and procedures of the rights, judicial remedies and sanctions, duties and liabilities of the Ministry of Culture.
Artistic works have a natural protection from the moment they are created within the scope of the Intellectual and Artistic Works No: 5846. It is not necessary for the work to be registered (recorded) or approved by any institution in Turkey.
However, it is possible to carry out optional registration procedures with the aim of providing convenience for proof in protecting the rights over the work and especially in determining the ownerships of right. In Turkey, the registration procedure is carried out by “The Directorate General of Copyrights” before the Ministry Of Culture.
