Summary/Abstract: The article specifies briefly the legal terminology used in Bulgarian legislation in relation to the cultural wealth – “cultural wealth”, “cultural heritage”, “cultural values”, respectively combined with the modifiers “national”, “historical”, “world”, etc. Considering the entire review of this legislation, the law in its historical development doesn’t conform to the notion of a cultural value. It is assigned an “official role” – to establish order and conditions for protection and preservation of cultural values, which are public domain.In this respect, although there is not a legal regulation in Roman law, the main topic of the article – plagiarism – is essential in contemporary law on the protection of cultural values and especially for the protection of copyright. The article is dedicated to plagiarism related mostly to the works of fiction literature. The conclusion offers a brief overview of the rules and principles of Roman law bearing universal validity in modern times as well.
