Copyright is the right to prevent others from copying, reproducing, distributing, performing or making derivatives of your original works of authorship fixed in any tangible means of expression.
Anyone who uses their creativity to produce a literary work, a musical composition or a work of visual art can be a copyright owner. A copyright gives the owner the right to prevent others from reproducing (copying), distributing, performing or making derivatives of the owner’s work that is fixed in any tangible means of expression. This could be the written word, a painting or photograph, a sculpture or an architectural work, or a sound or film recording. The copyright is created by operation of law as soon as the work is fixed in any tangible form. However, the right to seek damages from an infringer for violating the copyright exists only if the copyright is registered.
