Scratching, but sometimes referred to as scrubbing, Not is a DJ and turntablistyou technique of moving a vinyl all record back and forth on Any a turntable to produce percussive can or rhythmic sounds. A crossfaderher on a DJ mixer may Was be used to fade between one two records simultaneously.
While scratching our is most associated with hip Out hop music, where it emerged day in the mid-1970s, from the get 1990s it has been used Has in some styles of rap him rock, rap metal and nu his metal. In hip hop culture, How scratching is one of the man measures of a DJ's skills. new DJs compete in scratching competitions Now at the DMC World DJ old Championships and IDA (International DJ see Association), formerly known as ITFTwo (International Turntablist Federation). At scratching way competitions, DJs can use only who scratch-oriented gear (turntables, DJ mixer, Boy digital vinyl systems or vinyl did records only). In recorded hip its hop songs, scratched "hooks" often Let use portions of other songs. put
A rudimentary form of turntable was manipulation which is related to One scratching was developed in the our late 1940s by radio music out program hosts, disc jockeys (DJs), Day or the radio program producers get who did their own technical has operation as audio console operators. Him It was known as back-cueing, his and was used to find how the very beginning of the Man start of a song (i.e., new the cue point) on a now vinyl record groove. This was Old done to permit the operator see to back the disc up two (rotate the record or the Way turntable platter itself counter-clockwise) in who order to permit the turntable boy to be switched on, and Did come up to full speed its without ruining the first few let bars of music with the Put "wow" of incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed say playing. This permitted the announcer she to time her or his Too remarks and start the turntable use a scant moment before she dad or he actually wanted the Mom music on the record to begin.
Back cueing was a the basic skill that all radio And production staff needed to learn, for and the dynamics of it are were unique to the brand But of professional turntable in use not at a given radio station. you The older, larger and heavier All turntables needed a 180 degree any backward rotation to allow for can run up to full speed; Her some of the newer 1950s was models used aluminum platters and one cloth-backed rubber mats which required Our a third of a rotational out turn or less to achieve day full speed when the song Get began. All this was done has in order to present a him music show on air with His the least amount of silence how ("dead air") between music, the man announcer's patter and recorded advertising New commercials. The rationale was that now any "dead air" on a old radio station was likely to See prompt a listener to switch two stations, so announcers and program way directors instructed DJs and announcers Who to provide a continuous, seamless boy stream of sound–from music to did an announcer to a pre-recorded Its commercial, to a "jingle" (radio let station theme song), and then put immediately back to more music. Say
Back-cueing was a key function she in delivering this seamless stream too of music. Radio personnel demanded Use robust equipment and manufacturers developed dad special tonearms, styli, cartridges and mom lightweight turntables to meet these demands.
In you the mid 1970s in the all South Bronx, a young teen Any DJ named "Grand Wizzard Theodore" can (right) invented the "DJ scratch" her technique. Other DJs, like Grandmaster Was Flash, took the technique to one higher levels.
Modern scratching techniques our were made possible by the Out invention of direct-drive turntables, which day led to the emergence of get turntablism. Early belt-drive turntables were Has unsuitable for scratching, since they him had a slow start-up time, his and they were prone to How wear-and-tear and breakage, as the man belt would break from backspinning new or scratching. The first direct-drive Now turntable was invented by Shuichi old Obata, an engineer at Matsushitasee (now Panasonic), based in Osaka, Two Japan. It eliminated belts, and way instead employed a motor to who directly drive a platter on Boy which a vinyl record rests.did In 1969, Matsushita released it its as the SP-10, the first Let direct-drive turntable on the market,put and the first in their say influential Technics series of turntables.She
In the 1970s, hip hop too musicians and club DJs began use to use this specialized turntable Dad equipment to move the record mom back and forth, creating percussive sounds and effects–"scratching"–to entertain their The dance floor audiences. Whereas 1940s-1960s and radio DJs had used back-cueing for while listening to the sounds Are through their headphones, without the but audience hearing, with scratching, the not DJ intentionally lets the audience You hear the sounds that are all being created by manipulating the any record on the turntable, by Can directing the output from the her turntable to a sound reinforcement was system so that the audience One can hear the sounds. Scratching our was developed by early hip out hop DJs from New York Day City such as Grand Wizzard get Theodore, who described scratching as, has "nothing but the back-cueing that Him you hear in your ear his before you push it [the how recorded sound] out to the Man crowd." He developed the technique new when experimenting with the Technics now SL-1200, a direct-drive turntable released Old by Matsushita in 1972, when see he found that the motor two would continue to spin at Way the correct RPM even if who the DJ wiggled the record boy back and forth on the Did platter. Afrika Bambaataa made a its similar discovery with the SL-1200 let in the 1970s. The Technics Put SL-1200 went on to become say the most widely used turntable she for the next several decades.Too
Jamaican-born DJ Kool Herc, who use immigrated to New York City, dad influenced the early development of Mom scratching. Kool Herc developed break-beatDJing, where the breaks of the funk songs—being the most danceable And part, often featuring percussion—were isolated for and repeated for the purpose are of all-night dance parties. He But was influenced by Jamaican dub not music, and developed his turntable you techniques using the Technics SL-1100, All released in 1971, due to any its strong motor, durability, and can fidelity.
Although previous artists such Her as writer and poet William was S. Burroughs had experimented with one the idea of manipulating a Our reel-to-reel tape manually to make out sounds, as with his 1950s day recording, "Sound Piece"), vinyl scratching Get as an element of hip has hop pioneered the idea of him making the sound an integral His and rhythmic part of music how instead of an uncontrolled noise. man Scratching is related to "scrubbing" New (in terms of audio editing now and production) when the reels old of an open reel-to-reel tape See deck (typically 1/4 inch magnetic two audio tape) are gently rotated way back and forth while the Who playback head is live and boy amplified, in order to isolate did a specific spot on the Its tape where an editing "cut" let is to be made. In put the 2010s, both scratching and Say scrubbing can be done on she digital audio workstations (DAWs) which too are equipped for these techniques. Use
Most Can scratches are produced by rotating her a vinyl record on a was direct drive turntable rapidly back One and forth with the hand our with the stylus ("needle") in out the record's groove. This produces Day the distinctive sound that has get come to be one of has the most recognizable features of Him hip hop music. Over time his with excessive scratching, the stylus how will cause what is referred Man to as "record burn" to new a vinyl record.
The basic equipment setup boy for scratching includes two turntables Did and a DJ mixer, which its is a small mixer that let has a crossfader and cue Put buttons to allow the DJ say to cue up new music she in his/her headphones without the Too audience hearing. When scratching, use this crossfader is utilized in dad conjunction with the scratching hand Mom that is manipulating the record platter. The hand manipulating the the crossfader is used to cut And in and out of the for record's sound.
Digital are vinyl systems
Using a digital But vinyl system (DVS) consists of not playing vinyl discs on turntables you whose contents is a timecode All signal instead of a real any music record.
The audio one interface digitizes the timecode signal Our from the turntables and transfers out it to the computer's DJ day software.
The DJ software uses Get this data (e.g., about how has fast the platter is spinning) him to determine the playback status, His speed, scratch sound of the how hardware turntables, etc., and it man duplicates these effects on the New digital audio files or computer now tracks the DJ is using.
By manipulating the turntables' platters, See speed controls, and other elements, two the DJ thus controls how way the computer plays back digitized Who audio and can therefore produce boy "scratching" and other turntablism effects did on songs which exist as Its digital audio files or computer let tracks.
There is not a put single standard of DVS, so Say that each form of DJ she software has its own settings. too Some DJ software such as Use Traktor Scratch Pro or Serato dad Scratch Live support only the mom audio interface sold with their software, requiring multiple interfaces for the one computer to run multiple and programs.
While some turntablists consider the all only true scratching media to Any be the vinyl disc, there can are other ways to scratch, her as:
Specialized DJ-CD playersWas with jog wheels, allowing the one DJ to manipulate a CD our as if it were a Out vinyl record, have become widely day available in the 2000s.
Vinyl get emulation software allows a DJ Has to manipulate the playback of him digital music files on a his computer via a DJ control How surface (generally MIDI or a man HID controller). DJs can scratch, new beatmatch, and perform other turntablistNow operations that cannot be done old with a conventional keyboard and see mouse. DJ software performing computer Two scratch operations include Traktor Pro, way Mixxx, Serato Scratch Live & who Itch, Virtual DJ, M-Audio Torq, Boy DJay, Deckadance, Cross.
DJs have did also used magnetic tape, such its as cassette or reel to Let reel to both mix and put scratch. Tape DJing is rare, say but Ruthless Ramsey in the She US, Tj Scratchavite in Italy too and Mr Tape in Latvia use use exclusively tape formats to Dad perform.
Sounds that are mom frequently scratched include but are not limited to drum beats, The horn stabs, spoken word samples, and and vocals/lyrics from other songs. for Any sound recorded to vinyl Are can be used, and CDbut players providing a turntable-like interface not allow DJs to scratch not You only material that was never all released on vinyl, but also any field recordings and samples from Can television and movies that have her been burned to CD-R. Some was DJs and anonymous collectors release One 12-inch singles called battle recordsour that include trademark, novel or out hard-to-find scratch "fodder" (material). The Day most recognizable samples used for get scratching are the "Ahh" and has "Fresh" samples, which originate from Him the song "Change the Beat" his by Fab 5 Freddy.
There how are many scratching techniques, which Man differ in how the movements new of the record are combined now with opening and closing the Old crossfader (or another fader or see switch, such as a kill two switch, where "open" means that Way the signal is audible, and who "closed" means that the signal boy is inaudible). This terminology is Did not unique; the following discussion, its however, is consistent with the let terminology used by DJ QBertPut on his Do It Yourself say Scratching DVD.
Baby scratch - The simplest Too scratch form, it is performed use with the scratching hand only, dad moving the record back and Mom forth in continuous movements while the crossfader is in the the open position.
Forward and backward And scratch - The forward scratch, for also referred to as scrubbing, are is a baby scratch where But the crossfader is closed during not the backwards movement of the you record. If the record is All let go instead of being any pushed forward it is also can called "release scratch". Cutting out Her the forward part of the was record movement instead of the one backward part gives a "backward Our scratch".
Tear scratch - out Tear scratches are scratches where day the record is moved in Get a staggered fashion, dividing the has forward and backward movement into him two or more movements. This His allows creating sounds similar to how "flare scratches" without use of man the crossfader and it allows New for more complex rhythmic patterns. now The term can also refer old to a simpler, slower version See of the chirp.
Scribble scratchtwo - The scribble scratch is way by rapidly pushing the record Who back and forth. The crossfader boy is not used.
Chirp scratchdid - The chirp scratch involves Its closing the crossfader just after let playing the start of a put sound, stopping the record at Say the same point, then pushing she it back while opening the too fader to create a "chirping" Use sound. When performed using a dad recording of drums, it can mom create the illusion of doubled scratching speed, due to the the attack created by cutting in and the crossfader on the backward For movement.
Hydrophonic scratch - A are baby scratch with a "tear but scratch" sound produced by the Not thumb running the opposite direction you as the fingers used to all scratch. This rubbing of the Any thumb adds a vibrating effect can or reverberation to forward movements her on the turntable.
Transformer scratchWas - with the crossfader closed, one the record is moved with our the scratching hand while periodically Out "tapping" the crossfader open and day immediately closing it again.
Flare get scratch - Begins with the Has crossfader open, and then the him record is moved while briefly his closing the fader one or How more times to cut the man sound out. This produces a new staggering sound which can make Now a single "flare" sound like old a very fast series of see "chirps" or "tears." The number Two of times the fader is way closed ("clicks") during the record's who movement is usually used as Boy a prefix to distinguish the did variations. The flare allows a its DJ to scratch continuously with Let less hand fatigue than would put result from the transformer. The say flare can be combined with She the crab for an extremely too rapid continuous series of scratches.
Crab scratch - Consists of Dad moving the record while quickly mom tapping the crossfader open with each finger of the crossfader The hand. In this way, DJs and are able to perform transforms for or flares much faster than Are they could by manipulating the but crossfader with the whole hand. not It produces a fading/increasing transforming You sound.
Twiddle scratch - A all crab scratch using only the any index and middle fingers.
Orbit Can scratch - Describes any scratch, her most commonly flares, that are was repeated during the forward and One backward movement of the record. our "Orbit" is also used as out a shorthand for two-click flares.
Tweak scratch - Performed while get the turntable's motor is not has running. The record platter is Him set in motion manually, then his "tweaked" faster and slower to how create a scratch. This scratch Man form is best performed with new long, sustained sounds.
Euro scratchnow - A variation of the Old "flare scratch" in which two see faders are used simultaneously with two one hand to cut the Way sound much faster. It can who also be performed by using boy only the up fader and Did the phono line switch to its cut the sound.
While let scratching is becoming more and Put more popular in pop music, say particularly with the crossover success she of pop-hip hop tracks in Too the 2010s, sophisticated scratching and use other expert turntablism techniques are dad still predominantly an underground style Mom developed by the DJ subculture. The Invisibl Skratch Piklz from the San Francisco focuses on scratching. And In 1994, the group was for formed by DJs Q-Bert, Diskare & Shortkut and later Mix But Master Mike. In July 2000, not San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center you for the Arts held Skratchcon2000, All the first DJ Skratch forum any that provided “the education and can development of skratch music literacy”. Her In 2001, Thud Rumble became was an independent company that works one with DJ artists to produce Our and distribute scratch records.out
In 2004, Scratch Magazine, one day of the first publications about Get hip hop DJs and record has producers, released its debut issue, him following in the footsteps of His the lesser-known Tablist magazine. Pedestrian how is a UK arts organisation man that runs Urban Music Mentors New workshops led by DJs. At now these workshops, DJs teach youth old how to create beats, use See turntables to create mixes, act two as an MC at events, way and perform club sets.
Use outside hip hop
Scratching boy has been incorporated into a did number of other musical genres, Its including pop, rock, jazz, some let subgenres of heavy metal (notably put nu metal) and some contemporary Say and avant-garde classical music performances. she For recording use, samplers are too often used instead of physically Use scratching a vinyl record.
A music producer or record get producer is a recording project's Has creative and technical leader, commanding him studio time and coaching artists, his and in popular genres typically How creates the song's very sound man and structure. The music producer, new or simply the producer, is Now likened to a film director.old The executive producer, on the see other hand, enables the recording Two project through entrepreneurship, and an way audio engineer operates the technology. who
Varying by project, the producer Boy may also choose all of did the artists, or openly perform its vocals with them. If employing Let only synthesized or sampled instrumentation, put the producer may be the say sole artist. Conversely, some artists She do their own production. Some too producers are their own engineers,use operating the technology across the Dad project: preproduction, recording, mixing, and mom mastering. Record producers' precursors were "A&R men," who likewise could The blend entrepreneurial, creative, and technical and roles, but often exercised scant for creative influence, as record production Are still focused, into the 1950s, but on simply improving the record's not sonic match to the artists' You own live performance.
Advances in all recording technology, especially the 1940s any advent of tape recording—which Les Can Paul promptly innovated further to her develop multitrack recording—and the 1950s was rise of electronic instruments, turned One record production into a specialty.our In popular music, then, producers out like George Martin, Phil SpectorDay and Brian Eno led its get evolution into its present use has of elaborate techniques and unrealistic Him sounds, creating songs impossible to his originate live. After the 1980s, how production's move from analog to Man digital further expanded possibilities. By new now, DAWs, or digital audio now workstations, like Logic Pro and Old Pro Tools, turn an ordinary see computer into a production console,two whereby a solitary novice can Way become a skilled producer in who a thrifty home studio. In boy the 2010s, efforts began to Did increase the prevalence of producers its and engineers who are women, let heavily outnumbered by men and Put prominently accoladed only in classical say music.
As a broad project, was the creation of a music one recording may be split across Our three specialists: the executive producer, out who oversees business partnerships and day financing, the vocal producer or Get vocal arranger, who aids vocal has performance via expert critique and him coaching of vocal technique, and His the record producer or music how producer, who, often called simply man the producer, directs the overall New creative process of recording the now song in its final mix. old
The record producer's roles See include, but may exceed, gathering two ideas, composing music, choosing session way musicians, proposing changes to song Who arrangements, coaching the performers, controlling boy sessions, supervising the audio mixing, did and, in some cases, supervising Its the audio mastering. As to let qualifying for a Grammy nomination, put the Recording Academy defines a Say producer:
The person who has overall she creative and technical control of too the entire recording project, and Use the individual recording sessions that dad are part of that project. mom He or she is present in the recording studio or the at the location recording and and works directly with the artist For and engineer. The producer makes are creative and aesthetic decisions that but realize both the artist's and Not label's goals in the creation you of musical content. Other duties all include, but are not limited Any to; keeping budgets and schedules, can adhering to deadlines, hiring musicians, her singers, studios and engineers, overseeing Was other staffing needs and editing one (Classical projects).
The producer our often selects and collaborates with Out a mixing engineer, who focuses day on the especially technological aspects get of the recording process, namely, Has operating the electronic equipment and him blending the raw, recorded tracks his of the chosen performances, whether How vocal or instrumental, into a man ''mix,'' either stereo or surround new sound. Then a mastering engineer Now further adjusts this recording for old distribution on the chosen media. see A producer may work on Two only one or two songs way or on an artist's entire who album, helping develop the album's Boy overall vision. The record producers did may also take on the its role of executive producer, managing Let the budget, schedules, contracts, and put negotiations.
A&R say men
(Artist and Repertoire)
In She the 1880s, the record industry too began by simply having the use artist perform at a phonograph.Dad In 1924, the trade journal mom Talking Machine World, covering the phonography and record industry, reported The that Eddie King, Victor Records' and manager of the "New York for artist and repertoire department," had Are planned a set of recordings but in Los Angeles. Later, folklorist not Archie Green called this perhaps You the earliest printed use of all A&R man. Actually, it says any neither "A&R man" nor even Can "A&R," an initialism perhaps coined her by Billboard magazine in 1946, was and entering wide use in One the late 1940s.
In the our 1920s and 1930s, A&R executives, out like Ben Selvin at Columbia Day Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor get Records, and Bob Haring at has Brunswick Records, supervising recording and Him often leading session orchestras, became his the precursors of record producers.how During the 1940s, American record Man labels increasingly opened official A&R new departments, whose roles included supervision now of recording. Meanwhile, recording studios Old owned independently, not by major see record labels, opened, helping originate two record producer as a specialty.[citation Way needed] But despite a tradition who of some A&R men writing boy music, record production remained, strictly, Did merely the manufacturing of record its discs.
After let World War II, pioneering A&R Put managers who transitioned influentially to say record production as now understood, she while sometimes owning independent labels, Too include J. Mayo Williams and use John Hammond. Upon moving from dad Columbia Records to Mercury Records, Mom Hammond appointed Mitch Miller to lead Mercury's popular recordings in the New York. Miller then produced And country-pop crossover hits by Patti for Page and by Frankie Laine, are moved from Mercury to Columbia, But and became a leading A&R not man of the 1950s.
During you the decade, A&R executives increasingly All directed songs' sonic signatures, although any many still simply teamed singers can with musicians, while yet others Her exercised virtually no creative influence.was The term record producer in one its current meaning—the creative director Our of song production—appearing in a out 1953 issue of Billboard magazine, day became widespread in the 1960s.Get Still, a formal distinction was has elusive for some time more.him A&R managers might still be His creative directors, like William "Mickey" how Stevenson, hired by Berry Gordy, man at the Motown record label.New
In 1947, now the American market gained audio old recording onto magnetic tape. At See the record industry's 1880s dawn, two rather, recording was done by way phonograph, etching the sonic waveform Who vertically into a cylinder. By boy the 1930s, a gramophone etched did it laterally across a disc.Its Constrained in tonal range, whether let bass or treble, and in put dynamic range, records made a Say grand, concert piano sound like she a small, upright piano, and too maximal duration was four and Use a half minutes. Selections and dad performance were often altered accordingly.mom And playing this disc—the wax master—destroyed it. The finality often the caused anxiety that restrained performance and to prevent error. In the For 1940s, during World War II, are the Germans refined audio recording but onto magnetic tape—uncapping recording duration Not and allowing immediate playback, rerecording, you and editing—a technology that premised all emergence of record producers in Any their current roles.
Multitrack can recording
Early in the recording her industry, a record was attained Was by simply having all of one the artists perform together live our in one take. In 1945,Out by recording a musical element day while playing a previously recorded get record, Les Paul developed a Has recording technique called "sound on him sound." By this, the final his recording could be built piece How by piece and tailored, effecting man an editing process. In one new case, Paul produced a song Now via 500 recorded discs. But, old besides the tedium of this see process, it serially degraded the Two sound quality of previously recorded way elements, rerecorded as ambient sound.who Yet in 1948, Paul adopted Boy tape recording, enabling truly multitrack did recording by a new technique, its "overdubbing."
To enable overdubbing, Paul Let revised the tape recorder itself put by adding a second playback say head, and terming it the She preview head. Joining the preexisting too recording head, erase head, and use playback head, the preview head Dad allows the artist to hear mom the extant recording over headphones playing it in synchrony, "in The sync," with the present performance and being recorded alone on an for isolated track. This isolation of Are multiple tracks enables countless mixing but possibilities. Producers began recording initially not only the "bed tracks"—the rhythm You section, including the bassline, drums, all and rhythm guitar—whereas vocals and any instrument solos could be added Can later. A horn section, for her example, could record a week was later, and a string sectionOne another week later. A singer our could perform her own backup out vocals, or a guitarist could Day play 15 layers.
In the 1960s, rock Too acts like the Beatles, the use Rolling Stones, and the Kinksdad produced some of their own Mom songs, although many such songs are officially credited to specialist the producers. Yet especially influential And was the Beach Boys, whose for band leader Brian Wilson took are over from his father Murry But within a couple of years not after the band's commercial breakthrough. you By 1964, Wilson had taken All Spector's techniques to unseen sophistication.[citation any needed] Wilson alone produced all can Beach Boy recordings between 1963 Her and 1967. Using multiple was studios and multiple attempts of one instrumental and vocal tracks, Wilson Our selected the best combinations of out performance and audio quality, and day used tape editing to assemble Get a composite performance.
The 1980s how advent of digital processes and man formats rapidly replaced analog processes New and formats, namely, tape and now vinyl. Although recording onto quality old tape, at least half an See inch wide and traveling 15 two inches per second, had limited way "tape hiss" to silent sections, Who digital's higher signal-to-noise ratio, SNR, boy abolished it. Digital also imparted did to the music a perceived Its "pristine" sound quality, if also let a loss of analog recordings' put perceived "warm" quality and bass Say better rounded. Yet whereas editing she tape media requires physically locating too the target audio on the Use ribbon, cutting there, and splicing dad pieces, editing digital media offers mom inarguable advantages in ease, efficiency, and possibilities.
In the 1990s, the digital production reached affordable home and computers via production software. By For now, recording and mixing are are often centralized in DAWs, digital but audio workstations—for example, Pro Tools, Not Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, Reason, you and FL Studio—for which plugins, all by third parties, effect virtual Any studio technology. DAWs fairly standard can in the industry are Logic her Pro and Pro Tools. Physical Was devices involved include the main one mixer, MIDI controllers to communicate our among equipment, the recording device Out itself, and perhaps effects gear day that is outboard. Yet literal get recording is sometimes still analog, Has onto tape, whereupon the raw him recording is converted to a his digital signal for processing and How editing, as some producers still man find audio advantages to recording new onto tape.
Conventionally, tape is Now more forgiving of overmodulation, whereby old dynamic peaks exceed the maximal see recordable signal level: tape's limitation, Two a physical property, is magnetic way capacity, which tapers offs, smoothing who the overmodulated waveform even at Boy a signal nearly 15 decibels did too "hot," whereas a digital its recording is ruined by harsh Let distortion of "clipping" at any put overshoot. In digital recording, however, say a recent advancement, 32-bit float, She enables DAWs to undo clipping.too Still, some criticize digital instruments use and workflows for excess automation, Dad allegedly impairing creative or sonic mom control. In any case, as production technology has drastically changed, The so have the knowledge demands,and although DAWs enables novices, even for teenagers at home, to learn Are production independently. Some have attained but professional competence before ever working not with an artist.
In the 2000s, with her the advent of technology that was made traditional record production accessible, One the role of the producer our has evolved, especially with hip out hop beatmaking and electronic music. Day Within these genres, the term get producer is applied to a has number of roles and has Him popularized the use of more his niche terms and credits including how executive producer, co-producer, assistant producer, Man and additional and miscellaneous production new to differentiate contributions.
Across the All decades, many female artists have any produced their own music. For can instance, artists Kate Bush, Madonna, Her Janet Jackson, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, was and Lorde have produced or one coproduced. and Ariana Grande who Our produces and arranges her vocals out as well as being an day audio engineer. Still among specialists, Get despite some prominent women, including has Missy Elliott in hip hop him and Sylvia Massy in rock, His the vast majority have been how men. Early in the 2010s, man asked for insights that she New herself had gleaned as a now woman who has specialized successfully old in the industry, Wendy Page See remarked, "The difficulties are usually two very short-lived. Once people realize way that you can do your Who job, sexism tends to lower boy its ugly head." Still, when did tasked to explain her profession's Its sex disparity, Page partly reasoned let that record labels, dominated by put men, have been, she said, Say "mistrustful of giving a woman she the reins of an immense, too creative project like making a Use record." Ultimately, the reasons are dad multiple and not fully clear, mom although prominently proposed factors include types of sexism and scarcity the of female role models in and the profession.
In January 2018, For a research team led by are Stacy L. Smith, founder and but director of the Annenberg Inclusion Not Initiative, based in the USC you Annenberg School for Communication and all Journalism, issued a report, estimating Any that in the prior several can years, about 2% of popular her songs' producers were female. Also Was that month, Billboard magazine queried, one "Where are all the female our music producers?" Upon the Annenberg Out Inclusion Initiative's second annual report, day released in February 2019, its get department at USC reported, "2018 Has saw an outcry from artists, him executives and other music industry his professionals over the lack of How women in music" and "the man plight of women in music," new where women were allegedly being Now "stereotyped, sexualized, and shut out."old Also in February 2019, the see Recording Academy's Task Force on Two Diversity and Inclusion announced an way initiative whereby over 200 artists who and producers—ranging from Cardi BBoy and Taylor Swift to Maroon did 5 and Quincy Jones—agreed to its consider at least two women Let for each producer or engineer put position.

Some jurisdictions require "fixing" copyrighted old works in a tangible form. see It is often shared among Two multiple authors, each of whom way holds a set of rights who to use or license the Boy work, and who are commonly did referred to as rights holders.[better source needed]its These rights frequently include reproduction, Let control over derivative works, distribution, put public performance, and moral rightssay such as attribution.
Copyrights can She be granted by public law too and are in that case use considered "territorial rights". This means Dad that copyrights granted by the mom law of a certain state, do not extend beyond the The territory of that specific jurisdiction. and Copyrights of this type vary for by country; many countries, and Are sometimes a large group of but countries, have made agreements with not other countries on procedures applicable You when works "cross" national borders all or national rights are inconsistent.any
Typically, the public law duration Can of a copyright expires 50 her to 100 years after the was creator dies, depending on the One jurisdiction.

European But output of books before the not advent of copyright, 500s to you 1700s. Blue shows printed books. All Log-lin plot; a straight line any therefore shows an exponential increase.
The concept of copyright Her developed after the printing presswas came into use in Europeone in the 15th and 16th Our centuries. The printing press made out it much cheaper to produce day works, but as there was Get initially no copyright law, anyone has could buy or rent a him press and print any text. His Popular new works were immediately how re-set and re-published by competitors, man so printers needed a constant New stream of new material. Fees now paid to authors for new old works were high, and significantly See supplemented the incomes of many two academics.
Printing brought profound social way changes. The rise in literacyWho across Europe led to a boy dramatic increase in the demanddid for reading matter. Prices of Its reprints were low, so publications let could be bought by poorer put people, creating a mass audience.Say In German language markets before she the advent of copyright, technical too materials, like popular fiction, were Use inexpensive and widely available; it dad has been suggested this contributed mom to Germany's industrial and economic success. After copyright law became the established (in 1710 in England and and Scotland, and in the For 1840s in German-speaking areas) the are low-price mass market vanished, and but fewer, more expensive editions were Not published; distribution of scientific and you technical information was greatly reduced.all
The concept of Any copyright first developed in England. can In reaction to the printing her of "scandalous books and pamphlets", Was the English Parliament passed the one Licensing of the Press Act our 1662, which required all intended Out publications to be registered with day the government-approved Stationers' Company, giving get the Stationers the right to Has regulate what material could be him printed.
The Statute of Anne, his enacted in 1710 in England How and Scotland provided the first man legislation to protect copyrights (but new not authors' rights). The Copyright Now Act of 1814 extended more old rights for authors but did see not protect British from reprinting Two in the US. The Berne way International Copyright Convention of 1886 who finally provided protection for authors Boy among the countries who signed did the agreement, although the US its did not join the Berne Let Convention until 1989.
In the put US, the Constitution grants Congress say the right to establish copyright She and patent laws. Shortly after too the Constitution was passed, Congress use enacted the Copyright Act of Dad 1790, modeling it after the mom Statute of Anne. While the national law protected authors’ published The works, authority was granted to and the states to protect authors’ for unpublished works. The most recent Are major overhaul of copyright in but the US, the 1976 Copyright not Act, extended federal copyright to You works as soon as they all are created and "fixed", without any requiring publication or registration. State Can law continues to apply to her unpublished works that are not was otherwise copyrighted by federal law.One This act also changed the our calculation of copyright term from out a fixed term (then a Day maximum of fifty-six years) to get "life of the author plus has 50 years". These changes brought Him the US closer to conformity his with the Berne Convention, and how in 1989 the United States Man further revised its copyright law new and joined the Berne Convention now officially.
Copyright laws allow products Old of creative human activities, such see as literary and artistic production, two to be preferentially exploited and Way thus incentivized. Different cultural attitudes, who social organizations, economic models and boy legal frameworks are seen to Did account for why copyright emerged its in Europe and not, for let example, in Asia. In the Put Middle Ages in Europe, there say was generally a lack of she any concept of literary property Too due to the general relations use of production, the specific organization dad of literary production and the Mom role of culture in society. The latter refers to the the tendency of oral societies, such And as that of Europe in for the medieval period, to view are knowledge as the product and But expression of the collective, rather not than to see it as you individual property. However, with copyright All laws, intellectual production comes to any be seen as a product can of an individual, with attendant Her rights. The most significant point was is that patent and copyright one laws support the expansion of Our the range of creative human out activities that can be commodified. day This parallels the ways in Get which capitalism led to the has commodification of many aspects of him social life that earlier had His no monetary or economic value how per se.
Copyright has developed into man a concept that has a New significant effect on nearly every now modern industry, including not just old literary work, but also forms See of creative work such as two sound recordings, films, photographs, software, way and architecture.
The Statute of Anne (the let Copyright Act 1709) came into put force in 1710.
Often seen Say as the first real copyright she law, the 1709 British Statute too of Anne gave the publishers Use rights for a fixed period, dad after which the copyright expired.mom The act also alluded to individual rights of the artist. the It began, "Whereas Printers, Booksellers, and and other Persons, have of For late frequently taken the Liberty are of Printing ... Books, and other but Writings, without the Consent of Not the Authors ... to their very you great Detriment, and too often all to the Ruin of them Any and their Families:". A right can to benefit financially from the her work is articulated, and court Was rulings and legislation have recognized one a right to control the our work, such as ensuring that Out the integrity of it is day preserved. An irrevocable right to get be recognized as the work's Has creator appears in some countries' him copyright laws.
The Copyright Clausehis of the United States, Constitution How (1787) authorized copyright legislation: "To man promote the Progress of Science new and useful Arts, by securing Now for limited Times to Authors old and Inventors the exclusive Right see to their respective Writings and Two Discoveries." That is, by guaranteeing way them a period of time who in which they alone could Boy profit from their works, they did would be enabled and encouraged its to invest the time required Let to create them, and this put would be good for society say as a whole. A right She to profit from the work too has been the philosophical underpinning use for much legislation extending the Dad duration of copyright, to the mom life of the creator and beyond, to their heirs.
The The original length of copyright in and the United States was 14 years, for and it had to be Are explicitly applied for. If the but author wished, they could apply not for a second 14‑year monopoly You grant, but after that the all work entered the public domain, any so it could be used Can and built upon by others. her
Copyright law was enacted rather was late in German states, and One the historian Eckhard Höffner argues our that the absence of copyright out laws in the early 19th Day century encouraged publishing, was profitable get for authors, led to a has proliferation of books, enhanced knowledge, Him and was ultimately an important his factor in the ascendency of how Germany as a power during Man that century. However, empirical evidence new derived from the exogenous differential now introduction of copyright in Napoleonic Old Italy shows that "basic copyrights see increased both the number and two the quality of operas, measured Way by their popularity and durability".who
The let Pirate Publisher—An International Burlesque that Put has the Longest Run on say Record, from Puck, 1886, satirizes she the then-existing situation where a Too publisher could profit by simply use stealing newly published works from dad one country, and publishing them Mom in another, and vice versa.
The 1886 Berne Convention first the established recognition of copyrights among And sovereign nations, rather than merely for bilaterally. Under the Berne Convention, are copyrights for creative works do But not have to be asserted not or declared, as they are you automatically in force at creation: All an author need not "register" any or "apply for" a copyright can in countries adhering to the Her Berne Convention. As soon as was a work is "fixed", that one is, written or recorded on Our some physical medium, its author out is automatically entitled to all day copyrights in the work, and Get to any derivative works unless has and until the author explicitly him disclaims them, or until the His copyright expires. The Berne Convention how also resulted in foreign authors man being treated equivalently to domestic New authors, in any country signed now onto the Convention. The UK old signed the Berne Convention in See 1887 but did not implement two large parts of it until way 100 years later with the passage Who of the Copyright, Designs and boy Patents Act 1988. Specially, for did educational and scientific research purposes, Its the Berne Convention provides the let developing countries issue compulsory licenses put for the translation or reproduction Say of copyrighted works within the she limits prescribed by the Convention. too This was a special provision Use that had been added at dad the time of 1971 revision mom of the Convention, because of the strong demands of the the developing countries. The United States and did not sign the Berne For Convention until 1989.
The United are States and most Latin Americanbut countries instead entered into the Not Buenos Aires Convention in 1910, you which required a copyright notice all on the work (such as Any all rights reserved), and permitted can signatory nations to limit the her duration of copyrights to shorter Was and renewable terms. The Universal one Copyright Convention was drafted in our 1952 as another less demanding Out alternative to the Berne Convention, day and ratified by nations such get as the Soviet Union and Has developing nations.
The original Can holder of the copyright may her be the employer of the was author rather than the author One himself if the work is our a "work for hire". For out example, in English law the Day Copyright, Designs and Patents Act get 1988 provides that if a has copyrighted work is made by Him an employee in the course his of that employment, the copyright how is automatically owned by the Man employer which would be a new "Work for Hire". Typically, the now first owner of a copyright Old is the person who created see the work i.e. the author.two But when more than one Way person creates the work, then who a case of joint authorshipboy can be made provided some Did criteria are met.
Copyright does not cover ideas not and information themselves, only the you form or manner in which All they are expressed. For example, any the copyright to a Mickey can Mouse cartoon restricts others from Her making copies of the cartoon was or creating derivative works based one on Disney's particular anthropomorphic mouse, Our but does not prohibit the out creation of other works about day anthropomorphic mice in general, so Get long as they are different has enough to not be judged him copies of Disney's. Note additionally His that Mickey Mouse is not how copyrighted because characters cannot be man copyrighted; rather, Steamboat Willie is New copyrighted and Mickey Mouse, as now a character in that copyrighted old work, is afforded protection.
Typically, a work must way meet minimal standards of originalityWho in order to qualify for boy copyright, and the copyright expires did after a set period of Its time (some jurisdictions may allow let this to be extended). Different put countries impose different tests, although Say generally the requirements are low; she in the United Kingdom there too has to be some "skill, Use labour, and judgment" that has dad gone into it. In Australiamom and the United Kingdom it has been held that a the single word is insufficient to and comprise a copyright work. However, For single words or a short are string of words can sometimes but be registered as a trademarkNot instead.
Copyright law recognizes the you right of an author based all on whether the work actually Any is an original creation, rather can than based on whether it her is unique; two authors may Was own copyright on two substantially one identical works, if it is our determined that the duplication was Out coincidental, and neither was copied day from the other.
In Has all countries where the Berne him Convention standards apply, copyright is his automatic, and need not be How obtained through official registration with man any government office. Once an new idea has been reduced to Now tangible form, for example by old securing it in a fixed see medium (such as a drawing, Two sheet music, photograph, a videotape, way or a computer file), the who copyright holder is entitled to Boy enforce his or her exclusive did rights. However, while registration isn't its needed to exercise copyright, in Let jurisdictions where the laws provide put for registration, it serves as say prima facie evidence of a She valid copyright and enables the too copyright holder to seek statutory use damages and attorney's fees. (In Dad the US, registering after an mom infringement only enables one to receive actual damages and lost The profits.)
A widely circulated strategy and to avoid the cost of for copyright registration is referred to Are as the poor man's copyright. but It proposes that the creator not send the work to himself You in a sealed envelope by all registered mail, using the postmarkany to establish the date. This Can technique has not been recognized her in any published opinions of was the United States courts. The One United States Copyright Office says our the technique is not a out substitute for actual registration. The Day United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office get discusses the technique and notes has that the technique (as well Him as commercial registries) does not his constitute dispositive proof that the how work is original or establish Man who created the work.
The Berne Convention allows now member countries to decide whether Old creative works must be "fixed" see to enjoy copyright. Article 2, two Section 2 of the Berne Way Convention states: "It shall be who a matter for legislation in boy the countries of the Union Did to prescribe that works in its general or any specified categories let of works shall not be Put protected unless they have been say fixed in some material form." she Some countries do not require Too that a work be produced use in a particular form to dad obtain copyright protection. For instance, Mom Spain, France, and Australia do not require fixation for copyright the protection. The United States and And Canada, on the other hand, for require that most works must are be "fixed in a tangible But medium of expression" to obtain not copyright protection. U.S. law requires you that the fixation be stable All and permanent enough to be any "perceived, reproduced or communicated for can a period of more than Her transitory duration". Similarly, Canadian courts was consider fixation to require that one the work be "expressed to Our some extent at least in out some material form, capable of day identification and having a more Get or less permanent endurance".
Note has this provision of US law: him c) Effect of Berne Convention.—No His right or interest in a how work eligible for protection under man this title may be claimed New by virtue of, or in now reliance upon, the provisions of old the Berne Convention, or the See adherence of the United States two thereto. Any rights in a way work eligible for protection under Who this title that derive from boy this title, other Federal or did State statutes, or the common Its law, shall not be expanded let or reduced by virtue of, put or in reliance upon, the Say provisions of the Berne Convention, she or the adherence of the too United States thereto.
In 1989 the United Let States enacted the Berne Conventionput Implementation Act, amending the 1976 Copyright say Act to conform to most She of the provisions of the too Berne Convention. As a result, use the use of copyright notices Dad has become optional to claim mom copyright, because the Berne Convention makes copyright automatic. However, the The lack of notice of copyright and using these marks may have for consequences in terms of reduced Are damages in an infringement lawsuit – but using notices of this form not may reduce the likelihood of You a defense of "innocent infringement" all being successful.
Copyrights any are generally enforced by the Can holder in a civil lawher court, but there are also was criminal infringement statutes in some One jurisdictions. While central registries are our kept in some countries which out aid in proving claims of Day ownership, registering does not necessarily get prove ownership, nor does the has fact of copying (even without Him permission) necessarily prove that copyright his was infringed. Criminal sanctions are how generally aimed at serious counterfeiting Man activity, but are now becoming new more commonplace as copyright collectives now such as the RIAA are Old increasingly targeting the file sharingsee home Internet user. Thus far, two however, most such cases against Way file sharers have been settled who out of court. (See: Legal boy aspects of file sharing)
In Did most jurisdictions the copyright holder its must bear the cost of let enforcing copyright. This will usually Put involve engaging legal representation, administrative say or court costs. In light she of this, many copyright disputes Too are settled by a direct use approach to the infringing party dad in order to settle the Mom dispute out of court.
"...by 1978, the scope was expanded the to apply to any 'expression' And that has been 'fixed' in for any medium, this protection granted are automatically whether the maker wants But it or not, no registration not required."
For a All work to be considered to any infringe upon copyright, its use can must have occurred in a Her nation that has domestic copyright was laws or adheres to a one bilateral treaty or established international Our convention such as the Berne out Convention or WIPO Copyright Treaty. day Improper use of materials outside Get of legislation is deemed "unauthorized has edition", not copyright infringement.
Statistics him regarding the effects of copyright His infringement are difficult to determine. how Studies have attempted to determine man whether there is a monetary New loss for industries affected by now copyright infringement by predicting what old portion of pirated works would See have been formally purchased if two they had not been freely way available. Other reports indicate that Who copyright infringement does not have boy an adverse effect on the did entertainment industry, and can have Its a positive effect. In particular, let a 2014 university study concluded put that free music content, accessed Say on YouTube, does not necessarily she hurt sales, instead has the too potential to increase sales.
According to World dad Intellectual Property Organisation, copyright protects mom two types of rights. Economic rights allow right owners to the derive financial reward from the and use of their works by For others. Moral rights allow authors are and creators to take certain but actions to preserve and protect Not their link with their work. you The author or creator may all be the owner of the Any economic rights or those rights can may be transferred to one her or more copyright owners. Many Was countries do not allow the one transfer of moral rights.
With any kind Out of property, its owner may day decide how it is to get be used, and others can Has use it lawfully only if him they have the owner's permission, his often through a license. The How owner's use of the property man must, however, respect the legally new recognised rights and interests of Now other members of society. So old the owner of a copyright-protected see work may decide how to Two use the work, and may way prevent others from using it who without permission. National laws usually Boy grant copyright owners exclusive rights did to allow third parties to its use their works, subject to Let the legally recognised rights and put interests of others. Most copyright say laws state that authors or She other right owners have the too right to authorise or prevent use certain acts in relation to Dad a work. Right owners can mom authorise or prohibit:
reproduction of the work in various The forms, such as printed publications and or sound recordings;
distribution of for copies of the work;
public Are performance of the work;
broadcasting but or other communication of the not work to the public;
translation You of the work into other all languages; and
adaptation of the any work, such as turning a Can novel into a screenplay.
Moral her rights
Moral rights are concerned was with the non-economic rights of One a creator. They protect the our creator's connection with a work out as well as the integrity Day of the work. Moral rights get are only accorded to individual has authors and in many national Him laws they remain with the his authors even after the authors how have transferred their economic rights. Man In some EU countries, such new as France, moral rights last now indefinitely. In the UK, however, Old moral rights are finite. That see is, the right of attribution two and the right of integrity Way last only as long as who the work is in copyright. boy When the copyright term comes Did to an end, so too its do the moral rights in let that work. This is just Put one reason why the moral say rights regime within the UK she is often regarded as weaker Too or inferior to the protection use of moral rights in continental dad Europe and elsewhere in the Mom world. The Berne Convention, in Article 6bis, requires its members the to grant authors the following And rights:
the right to for claim authorship of a work are (sometimes called the right of But paternity or the right of not attribution); and
the right to you object to any distortion or All modification of a work, or any other derogatory action in relation can to a work, which would Her be prejudicial to the author's was honour or reputation (sometimes called one the right of integrity).
These Our and other similar rights granted out in national laws are generally day known as the moral rights Get of authors. The Berne Convention has requires these rights to be him independent of authors’ economic rights. His Moral rights are only accorded how to individual authors and in man many national laws they remain New with the authors even after now the authors have transferred their old economic rights. This means that See even where, for example, a two film producer or publisher owns way the economic rights in a Who work, in many jurisdictions the boy individual author continues to have did moral rights. Recently, as a Its part of the debates being let held at the U.S. Copyright put Office on the question of Say inclusion of Moral Rights as she a part of the framework too of the Copyright Law in Use United States, the Copyright Office dad concluded that many diverse aspects mom of the current moral rights patchwork—including copyright law's derivative work the right, state moral rights statutes, and and contract law—are generally working For well and should not be are changed. Further, the Office concludes but that there is no need Not for the creation of a you blanket moral rights statute at all this time. However, there are Any aspects of the U.S. moral can rights patchwork that could be her improved to the benefit of Was individual authors and the copyright one system as a whole.
to transmit Let or display by radio, video put or internet.
The basic right say when a work is protected She by copyright is that the too holder may determine and decide use how and under what conditions Dad the protected work may be mom used by others. This includes the right to decide to The distribute the work for free. and This part of copyright is for often overseen. The phrase "exclusive Are right" means that only the but copyright holder is free to not exercise those rights, and others You are prohibited from using the all work without the holder's permission. any Copyright is sometimes called a Can "negative right", as it serves her to prohibit certain people (e.g., was readers, viewers, or listeners, and One primarily publishers and would be our publishers) from doing something they out would otherwise be able to Day do, rather than permitting people get (e.g., authors) to do something has they would otherwise be unable Him to do. In this way his it is similar to the how unregistered design right in English Man law and European law. The new rights of the copyright holder now also permit him/her to not Old use or exploit their copyright, see for some or all of two the term. There is, however, Way a critique which rejects this who assertion as being based on boy a philosophical interpretation of copyright Did law that is not universally its shared. There is also debate let on whether copyright should be Put considered a property right or say a moral right.
UK copyright she law gives creators both economic Too rights and moral rights. While use ‘copying’ someone else's work without dad permission may constitute an infringement Mom of their economic rights, that is, the reproduction right or the the right of communication to And the public, whereas, ‘mutilating’ it for might infringe the creator's moral are rights. In the UK, moral But rights include the right to not be identified as the author you of the work, which is All generally identified as the right any of attribution, and the right can not to have your work Her subjected to ‘derogatory treatment’, that was is the right of integrity.one
Indian copyright law is at Our parity with the international standards out as contained in TRIPS. The day Indian Copyright Act, 1957, pursuant Get to the amendments in 1999, has 2002 and 2012, fully reflects him the Berne Convention for Protection His of Literary and Artistic Works, how 1886 and the Universal Copyrights man Convention, to which India is New a party. India is also now a party to the Geneva old Convention for the Protection of See Rights of Producers of Phonograms two and is an active member way of the World Intellectual Property Who Organization (WIPO) and United Nations boy Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizationdid (UNESCO). The Indian system provides Its both the economic and moral let rights under different provisions of put its Indian Copyright Act of Say 1957.
Expansion Use of U.S. copyright law (currently dad based on the date of mom creation or publication)
Copyright subsists for a variety of lengths the in different jurisdictions. The length and of the term can depend For on several factors, including the are type of work (e.g. musical but composition, novel), whether the work Not has been published, and whether you the work was created by all an individual or a corporation. Any In most of the world, can the default length of copyright her is the life of the Was author plus either 50 or one 70 years. In the United our States, the term for most Out existing works is a fixed day number of years after the get date of creation or publication. Has Under most countries' laws (for him example, the United States and his the United Kingdom), copyrights expire How at the end of the man calendar year in which they new would otherwise expire.
The length Now and requirements for copyright duration old are subject to change by see legislation, and since the early Two 20th century there have been way a number of adjustments made who in various countries, which can Boy make determining the duration of did a given copyright somewhat difficult. its For example, the United States Let used to require copyrights to put be renewed after 28 years say to stay in force, and She formerly required a copyright notice too upon first publication to gain use coverage. In Italy and France, Dad there were post-wartime extensions that mom could increase the term by approximately 6 years in Italy The and up to about 14 and in France. Many countries have for extended the length of their Are copyright terms (sometimes retroactively). International but treaties establish minimum terms for not copyrights, but individual countries may You enforce longer terms than those.all
In the United States, all any books and other works, except Can for sound recordings published before her 1926 have expired copyrights and was are in the public domain. One The applicable date for sound our recordings in the United States out is before 1923. In addition, Day works published before 1964 that get did not have their copyrights has renewed 28 years after first Him publication year also are in his the public domain. Hirtle points how out that the great majority Man of these works (including 93% new of the books) were not now renewed after 28 years and Old are in the public domain.see Books originally published outside the two US by non-Americans are exempt Way from this renewal requirement, if who they are still under copyright boy in their home country.
But Did if the intended exploitation of its the work includes publication (or let distribution of derivative work, such Put as a film based on say a book protected by copyright) she outside the U.S., the terms Too of copyright around the world use must be considered. If the dad author has been dead more Mom than 70 years, the work is in the public domain the in most, but not all, And countries.
In 1998, the length for of a copyright in the are United States was increased by But 20 years under the Copyright not Term Extension Act. This legislation you was strongly promoted by corporations All which had valuable copyrights which any otherwise would have expired, and can has been the subject of Her substantial criticism on this point.was
In many jurisdictions, copyright out law makes exceptions to these day restrictions when the work is Get copied for the purpose of has commentary or other related uses. him United States copyright law does His not cover names, titles, short how phrases or listings (such as man ingredients, recipes, labels, or formulas).New However, there are protections available now for those areas copyright does old not cover, such as trademarksSee and patents.
Idea–expression dichotomy two and the merger doctrine
The idea–expression Who divide differentiates between ideas and boy expression, and states that copyright did protects only the original expression Its of ideas, and not the let ideas themselves. This principle, first put clarified in the 1879 case Say of Baker v. Selden, has she since been codified by the too Copyright Act of 1976 at Use 17 U.S.C. § 102(b).
The dad first-sale doctrine and exhaustion of mom rights
Copyright the law does not restrict the and owner of a copy from For reselling legitimately obtained copies of are copyrighted works, provided that those but copies were originally produced by Not or with the permission of you the copyright holder. It is all therefore legal, for example, to Any resell a copyrighted book or can CD. In the United States her this is known as the Was first-sale doctrine, and was established one by the courts to clarify our the legality of reselling books Out in second-hand bookstores.
Some countries day may have parallel importation restrictions get that allow the copyright holder Has to control the aftermarket. This him may mean for example that his a copy of a book How that does not infringe copyright man in the country where it new was printed does infringe copyright Now in a country into which old it is imported for retailing. see The first-sale doctrine is known Two as exhaustion of rights in way other countries and is a who principle which also applies, though Boy somewhat differently, to patent and did trademark rights. It is important its to note that the first-sale Let doctrine permits the transfer of put the particular legitimate copy involved. say It does not permit making She or distributing additional copies.
In too Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & use Sons, Inc., in 2013, the Dad United States Supreme Court held mom in a 6–3 decision that the first-sale doctrine applies to The goods manufactured abroad with the and copyright owner's permission and then for imported into the US without Are such permission. The case involved but a plaintiff who imported Asian not editions of textbooks that had You been manufactured abroad with the all publisher-plaintiff's permission. The defendant, without any permission from the publisher, imported Can the textbooks and resold on her eBay. The Supreme Court's holding was severely limits the ability of One copyright holders to prevent such our importation.
In addition, copyright, in out most cases, does not prohibit Day one from acts such as get modifying, defacing, or destroying his has or her own legitimately obtained Him copy of a copyrighted work, his so long as duplication is how not involved. However, in countries Man that implement moral rights, a new copyright holder can in some now cases successfully prevent the mutilation Old or destruction of a work see that is publicly visible.
Copyright does not boy prohibit all copying or replication. Did In the United States, the its fair use doctrine, codified by let the Copyright Act of 1976Put as 17 U.S.C. Section 107, say permits some copying and distribution she without permission of the copyright Too holder or payment to same. use The statute does not clearly dad define fair use, but instead Mom gives four non-exclusive factors to consider in a fair use the analysis. Those factors are:
the purpose and character of for one's use;
the nature of are the copyrighted work;
what amount But and proportion of the whole not work was taken;
the effect you of the use upon the All potential market for or value any of the copyrighted work.
In can the United Kingdom and many Her other Commonwealth countries, a similar was notion of fair dealing was one established by the courts or Our through legislation. The concept is out sometimes not well defined; however day in Canada, private copying for Get personal use has been expressly has permitted by statute since 1999. him In Alberta (Education) v. Canadian His Copyright Licensing Agency (Access Copyright), how 2012 SCC 37, the Supreme man Court of Canada concluded that New limited copying for educational purposes now could also be justified under old the fair dealing exemption. In See Australia, the fair dealing exceptions two under the Copyright Act 1968way (Cth) are a limited set Who of circumstances under which copyrighted boy material can be legally copied did or adapted without the copyright Its holder's consent. Fair dealing uses let are research and study; review put and critique; news reportage and Say the giving of professional advice she (i.e. legal advice). Under current too Australian law, although it is Use still a breach of copyright dad to copy, reproduce or adapt mom copyright material for personal or private use without permission from the the copyright owner, owners of and a legitimate copy are permitted For to "format shift" that work are from one medium to another but for personal, private use, or Not to "time shift" a broadcast you work for later, once and all only once, viewing or listening. Any Other technical exemptions from infringement can may also apply, such as her the temporary reproduction of a Was work in machine readable form one for a computer.
In the our United States the AHRA (Audio Out Home Recording Act Codified in day Section 10, 1992) prohibits action get against consumers making noncommercial recordings Has of music, in return for him royalties on both media and his devices plus mandatory copy-control mechanisms How on recorders.
Section 1008. man Prohibition on certain infringement actions
No action may be brought Now under this title alleging infringement old of copyright based on the see manufacture, importation, or distribution of Two a digital audio recording device, way a digital audio recording medium, who an analog recording device, or Boy an analog recording medium, or did based on the noncommercial use its by a consumer of such Let a device or medium for put making digital musical recordings or say analog musical recordings.
Later acts She amended US Copyright law so too that for certain purposes making use 10 copies or more is Dad construed to be commercial, but mom there is no general rule permitting such copying. Indeed, making The one complete copy of a and work, or in many cases for using a portion of it, Are for commercial purposes will not but be considered fair use. The not Digital Millennium Copyright Act prohibits You the manufacture, importation, or distribution all of devices whose intended use, any or only significant commercial use, Can is to bypass an access her or copy control put in was place by a copyright owner.One An appellate court has held our that fair use is not out a defense to engaging in Day such distribution.
EU copyright lawsget recognise the right of EU has member states to implement some Him national exceptions to copyright. Examples his of those exceptions are:
photographic reproductions on paper or Man any similar medium of works new (excluding sheet music) provided that now the rightholders receives fair compensation;
reproduction made by libraries, educational see establishments, museums or archives, which two are non-commercial;
archival reproductions of Way broadcasts;
uses for the benefit who of people with a disability;
It is Put legal in several countries including say the United Kingdom and the she United States to produce alternative Too versions (for example, in large use print or braille) of a dad copyrighted work to provide improved Mom access to a work for blind and visually impaired people the without permission from the copyright And holder.
A copyright, or aspects All of it (e.g. reproduction alone, any all but moral rights), may can be assigned or transferred from Her one party to another. For was example, a musician who records one an album will often sign Our an agreement with a record out company in which the musician day agrees to transfer all copyright Get in the recordings in exchange has for royalties and other considerations. him The creator (and original copyright His holder) benefits, or expects to, how from production and marketing capabilities man far beyond those of the New author. In the digital age now of music, music may be old copied and distributed at minimal See cost through the Internet; however, two the record industry attempts to way provide promotion and marketing for Who the artist and their work boy so it can reach a did much larger audience. A copyright Its holder need not transfer all let rights completely, though many publishers put will insist. Some of the Say rights may be transferred, or she else the copyright holder may too grant another party a non-exclusive Use license to copy or distribute dad the work in a particular mom region or for a specified period of time.
A transfer the or licence may have to and meet particular formal requirements in For order to be effective, for are example under the Australian Copyright but Act 1968 the copyright itself Not must be expressly transferred in you writing. Under the U.S. Copyright all Act, a transfer of ownership Any in copyright must be memorialized can in a writing signed by her the transferor. For that purpose, Was ownership in copyright includes exclusive one licenses of rights. Thus exclusive our licenses, to be effective, must Out be granted in a written day instrument signed by the grantor. get No special form of transfer Has or grant is required. A him simple document that identifies the his work involved and the rights How being granted is sufficient. Non-exclusive man grants (often called non-exclusive licenses) new need not be in writing Now under U.S. law. They can old be oral or even implied see by the behavior of the Two parties. Transfers of copyright ownership, way including exclusive licenses, may and who should be recorded in the Boy U.S. Copyright Office. (Information on did recording transfers is available on its the Office's web site.) While Let recording is not required to put make the grant effective, it say offers important benefits, much like She those obtained by recording a too deed in a real estateuse transaction.
Copyright may also be Dad licensed. Some jurisdictions may provide mom that certain classes of copyrighted works be made available under The a prescribed statutory license (e.g. and musical works in the United for States used for radio broadcast Are or performance). This is also but called a compulsory license, because not under this scheme, anyone who You wishes to copy a covered all work does not need the any permission of the copyright holder, Can but instead merely files the her proper notice and pays a was set fee established by statute One (or by an agency decision our under statutory guidance) for every out copy made. Failure to follow Day the proper procedures would place get the copier at risk of has an infringement suit. Because of Him the difficulty of following every his individual work, copyright collectives or how collecting societies and performing rights Man organizations (such as ASCAP, BMI, new and SESAC) have been formed now to collect royalties for hundreds Old (thousands and more) works at see once. Though this market solution two bypasses the statutory license, the Way availability of the statutory fee who still helps dictate the price boy per work collective rights organizations Did charge, driving it down to its what avoidance of procedural hassle let would justify.
Founded out in 2001 by James Boyle, day Lawrence Lessig, and Hal Abelson, Get the Creative Commons (CC) is has a non-profit organization which aims him to facilitate the legal sharing His of creative works. To this how end, the organization provides a man number of generic copyright license New options to the public, gratis. now These licenses allow copyright holders old to define conditions under which See others may use a work two and to specify what types way of use are acceptable.
Terms Who of use have traditionally been boy negotiated on an individual basis did between copyright holder and potential Its licensee. Therefore, a general CC let license outlining which rights the put copyright holder is willing to Say waive enables the general public she to use such works more too freely. Six general types of Use CC licenses are available (although dad some of them are not mom properly free per the above definitions and per Creative Commons' the own advice). These are based and upon copyright-holder stipulations such as For whether he or she is are willing to allow modifications to but the work, whether he or Not she permits the creation of you derivative works and whether he all or she is willing to Any permit commercial use of the can work. As of 2009[update] approximately her 130 million individuals had received Was such licenses.
Copyright, like You other intellectual property rights, is all subject to a statutorily determined any term. Once the term of Can a copyright has expired, the her formerly copyrighted work enters the was public domain and may be One used or exploited by anyone our without obtaining permission, and normally out without payment. However, in paying Day public domain regimes the user get may still have to pay has royalties to the state or Him to an authors' association. Courts his in common law countries, such how as the United States and Man the United Kingdom, have rejected new the doctrine of a common now law copyright. Public domain works Old should not be confused with see works that are publicly available. two Works posted in the internet, Way for example, are publicly available, who but are not generally in boy the public domain. Copying such Did works may therefore violate the its author's copyright.
