What is Copyright
Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of artistic authorship. the purpose of copyright is to allow creators to gain economic rewards for their efforts and so encourage future creativity and the development of new material which benefits us all. copyright material is usually the result of creative skill and/or significant labour and/or investment, and without protection, it would often be very easy for others to exploit material without paying the creator.
Most uses of copyright material therefore require permission from the copyright owner. However, there are exceptions to copyright, so that some minor uses may not infringe copyright.
Copyright protects original works of authorship, while a patent protects inventions or discoveries. ideas and discoveries are not protected by the copyright law, although the way in which they are expressed may be.
A trademark protects designs identifying the source of the goods or crafts of one party and distinguishing them from those of others. Copyright laws grant several moral rights to a copyright holder.
