Copyright

copyrightCopyright is a form of IP that gives the author/owner of an original work exclusive right for a certain time period in relation to that work, including its publication, distribution and adaptation, after which time the work is said to enter the public domain. Copyright applies to any expressible form of an idea or information, which is discrete and substantive and fixed in a medium. Copyright is described under the umbrella term intellectual property along with trademarks and patents.

Copyright ensures certain minimum safeguards of the rights of authors over their creations, thereby rewarding and protecting creativity. The protection provided by copyright to the efforts of writers, designers, artists, dramatists, musicians, architects and producers of sound recordings, cinematography films and computer software, creates an atmosphere conducive to creativity, which induces them to create more and motivates others to create.
