Azerbaijan protests against next Armenian provocation
The music of the operetta, `O olmasın, bu olsun` was presented as the Armenian dance melody and called `national dance melody` in the wedding of Armenian Samvel Karapetyan`s, the owner of the real estate firm Tashir Group son on June 5.

Arrogation of the Azerbaijani artistic works has become a part of the Armenian cultural policy, the Copyright Agency told AzVision.az.

When foreign legal and physical entities use the Azerbaijani folklore precedents with the purpose of commerce, they need to get permission from the Copyright Agency.

Note, the representation of `Uzundere` national dance as the Armenian folklore precedent is not a new case. `Uzundere`, the national Azerbaijani dance melody was presented as the Armenian dance melody in the documentary about Armenia shown in `Mir`, the Russian channel in 2011. Besides the video about the Armenian cuisine presented `Uzundere`dance as the Armenian dance in the program of `Жить здорово` , broadcasted in `ORT`, the russian channel on December 18, 2013. It is the violation of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works. The Copyright Agency will express its official protest to the relevant international bodies about the issue.
