Establishment of Russian Union of Rights Holders (RUR) was a result of joint participation of societies, which protect rights of authors, performers, phonogram and audiovisual work producers, such as Russian Filmmakers’ Union, Russian Authors’ Society (RAO) and Russian Organization for Intellectual Property (VOIS).

The key aim of RUR is to execute rights of phonogram and AVW creators for compensation for copies in the private sphere (blank tape levy).

All activities of RUR are carried out in strict accordance with Russian legislation.

Our task is to develop legal culture on the Russian music market, to support evolvement of national filmmaking and music industries.

President of RUR Council
