In case of violence of Copyright of literary, scientific and artistic works, authors` interests do not end in an appropriate legal sanction or even criminal penalty sometimes set for violator for illegal activity done. It is very important for the author that profit and non-profit damage would be determined or compensation set in a short time period. Copyright regulation, its protection and defense including damage compensation have changed a lot since Lithuania’s independence announcement. These changes are being analysed by the author of this paper while implementing the standard rules of law for regulation of copyright and related rights as well as changes in defense process and its development. In consideration of one of the most important international documents regulating protection and defense of copyright and related rights, some certain periods have been distinguished, namely a period before the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the one after. Whereas the author of this paper taking into account law rules regulating copyright and related rights defense divides the mentioned periods to the following stages: up to year 1994; from 1994 to 1999 06 09; from 1999 06 09 to 2003 03 21 and from 2003 03 21 up to now and analyses them separately.
