In the times we live in, cyberspace is considered by many as a free space and so that any electronic content can be used for free. At the same time, the fight against piracy is condemned as a fight against the free exchange of information. And only half of Bulgarians use Internet technologies safely. The fact is that there is a need for a new legal framework that regulates in detail the regulators in the media, as well as the rights of authors who create journalistic materials in the media space in Bulgaria. But the competence of creators in terms of copyright in the media and intellectual property in general is also essential. The legal rights of authors of creative products in the media are intellectual property rights. Intellectual property is directly linked to the information contained in its objects, and in this sense the information sources on the Internet can be referred to as objects of intellectual property, in particular copyright. Intellectual property is the ownership of the information that intellectual products contain, and their creators have full ownership of them. In other words, intellectual property rights must be seen as objective and subjective law, discipline and science, widely represented in the internet of the new millennium.
