The article deals with the dualism of legal protection of a character. The features of the character as an object of copyright and as a trademark are highlighted. It is concluded that there are signs of abuse of rights and violation of the balance of interests of copyright holders and users in the possibility of registering a character as a trademark provided by the law beyond the terms of its copyright protection. It is proposed to use the basis for refusing state registration of a trademark in respect of designations that are false or capable of misleading the consumer about the product or its manufacturer, for signs consisting of characters that have artistic value. In addition, it is considered possible to prohibit the registration of characters as a trademark if such use distorts, distorts or otherwise changes the character, or discredits the honor, dignity or business reputation of the author of the character.
