This paper presents a study of the problems of copyright protection for audiovisual works on the Internet. The work focuses on legal gaps in international and domestic law and ways to overcome them. Although the existing legislation contains provisions for copyright protection, they are not applicable for audiovisual works published on the Internet. Recently, this complex topic has been frequently addressed in scientific researches, which unfortunately have not led to substantial outcomes as most of the studies lack of practical significance to solve the problem of authors online-insecurity. Thus, drawing on laws as primary sources, scientific articles and law enforcement practice as secondary sources the study seeks to identify applicability of existing laws to copyright protection on the Internet and to examine ways of filling the existing legal gaps. The main contribution of this study is identifying the problem of copyright protection on the Internet and proposing amendments to copyright laws. Thus, the paper is concluded by remarks recapitalizing the main findings which include. We hope that our research will make a scientific contribution to the study area and give the government a start of work on amendments to legislation.
