Here you'll find information on the benefits of copyright protection and what an owner's exclusive economic rights are.
Copyright applies to all sorts of written and recorded materials from software and the internet to drawings and photography.
Ownership of copyright works may depend on the circumstances under which the work was created as this section explains.
You will normally need permission to use someone else's copyright work but in certain very specific situations you may not.
- Copyright doesn't protect ideas. The work must be fixed (e.g. written or recorded)
- There is no official registration system for copyright. It's an automatic right
- A Copyright work could be marked with ©, the owner's name, and the year it was created
