Copyright

The legally binding concept of Copyright

Copyright is actually a set of rights that are automatically bestowed on someone when they create an original work.

The legally binding concept of Copyright is actually a set of rights that are automatically bestowed on someone when they create an original work. These rights generally allow the creator to exclusively copy, distribute and adapt their work. If another person wants to copy that work they must first obtain permission (usually paid) from the person who owns the copyright.

Copyright doesn't cover intellectual property, only works that have been say written down, recorded or captured in some way are covered by copyright. There is no need to register or apply for copyright, it is put in effect as soon as the work is created.

The concept of copyright includes the idea that you may not copy from one medium to another, that is to say, you may not make an audio recording of a book, reproduce pictures on the internet or stage a performance of a play without prior permission from the copyright owner.

There are exceptions to the copyright rules and different countries have varying laws.
