In this paper, the author analyzes the doctrine, current domestic legislation and judicial practice related to the protectability of photo and video files, their legal protection and subsequent protection in court against violation of exclusive copyright by third parties. The analysis of judicial practice shows a decrease in the standards of creative nature for copyright objects. The widespread distribution of photo and video materials on the Internet leads to an increase in the number of copyright violations of photo and video works.
