In the paper, the authors raise the issue of protecting the copyright of an architect. One of the ways to protect it is the trial. The RF Constitution guarantees judicial protection of rights and freedoms. Recently, in the Russian Federation, the number of appeals to the court for copyright protection has increased, indicating a large number of infringements of intellectual property rights of architects. The study of the authors showed that often the cause of litigation is the discrepancy of the values of the objects of copyright of the architect. To interpret such concepts as “architectural solution”, “architectural design”, “architect’s concept”, “architect’s idea” and others, the court is forced to involve specialists whose opinions in the court decision become the source of law, which contradicts the theory of state and law. The authors believe that the legislative consolidation of clear, certain essential features of the conceptual and categorical framework used in architectural activity is the improvement of the protection mechanism for the works of architects that are the result of their creative activity.
