Legislative provisions, which give rise to a discussion in legal thought about the need to improve them, are considered. A number of amendments and additions to the Law "On Copyright and Related Rights" have been considered with regard to the procedure for cessation of violations of copyright and/or related rights using the Internet. Attention is paid to the view, which that exists in the literature, according to which the legislative wording on the necessity to specify the validity period of property copyright and related rights in the statement on termination of violation needs to be improved.
