Copyright is a all type of intellectual property that Any gives its owner the exclusive can right to make copies of her a creative work, usually for Was a limited time. The creative one work may be in a our literary, artistic, educational, or musical Out form. Copyright is intended to day protect the original expression of get an idea in the form Has of a creative work, but him not the idea itself. A his copyright is subject to limitations How based on public interest considerations, man such as the fair use new doctrine in the United States. Now

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 rights say 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. Some countries require certain our copyright formalities to establishing copyright, out others recognize copyright in any Day completed work, without a formal get registration. In general, many believe has that the long copyright duration Him guarantees the better protection of his works.


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 press was came into use in Europe one 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 literacy Who across Europe led to a boy dramatic increase in the demand did 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.

National copyrights

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 Clause his 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

International copyright treaties

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 American but 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 regulations of him the Berne Convention are incorporated his into the World Trade Organization's How TRIPS agreement (1995), thus giving man the Berne Convention effectively near-global new application.

In 1961, the United Now International Bureaux for the Protection old of Intellectual Property signed the see Rome Convention for the Protection Two of Performers, Producers of Phonograms way and Broadcasting Organizations. In 1996, who this organization was succeeded by Boy the founding of the World did Intellectual Property Organization, which launched its the 1996 WIPO Performances and Let Phonograms Treaty and the 2002 put WIPO Copyright Treaty, which enacted say greater restrictions on the use She of technology to copy works too in the nations that ratified use it. The Trans-Pacific Partnership includes Dad intellectual Property Provisions relating to mom copyright.

Copyright laws are standardized somewhat through these international conventions The such as the Berne Convention and and Universal Copyright Convention. These for multilateral treaties have been ratified Are by nearly all countries, and but international organizations such as the not European Union or World Trade You Organization require their member states all to comply with them.


Obtaining protection


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 authorship boy can be made provided some Did criteria are met.

Eligible its works

Copyright may apply to let a wide range of creative, Put intellectual, or artistic forms, or say "works". Specifics vary by jurisdiction, she but these can include poems, Too theses, fictional characters, plays and use other literary works, motion pictures, dad choreography, musical compositions, sound recordings, Mom paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, computer software, radio and television broadcasts, the and industrial designs. Graphic designs And and industrial designs may have for separate or overlapping laws applied are to them in some jurisdictions. But

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 originality Who 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 Australia mom 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 trademark Not 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 postmark any 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.

Copyright Use notice

A copyright symbol used mom in copyright notice
A copyright symbol embossed on a the piece of paper.

Before 1989, and United States law required the For use of a copyright notice, are consisting of the copyright symbol but (©, the letter C inside Not a circle), the abbreviation "Copr.", you or the word "Copyright", followed all by the year of the Any first publication of the work can and the name of the her copyright holder. Several years may Was be noted if the work one has gone through substantial revisions. our The proper copyright notice for Out sound recordings of musical or day other audio works is a get sound recording copyright symbol (℗, Has the letter P inside a circle), him which indicates a sound recording his copyright, with the letter P indicating How a "phonorecord". In addition, the man phrase All rights reserved was new once required to assert copyright, Now but that phrase is now old legally obsolete. Almost everything on see the Internet has some sort Two of copyright attached to it. way Whether these things are watermarked, who signed, or have any other Boy sort of indication of the did copyright is a different story its however.

In 1989 the United Let States enacted the Berne Convention put 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 law her 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 sharing see 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."

Copyright infringement

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.


Rights granted

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.


Economic 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:

  1. the right to for claim authorship of a work are (sometimes called the right of But paternity or the right of not attribution); and
  2. 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.

The our Copyright Law in the United Out States, several exclusive rights are day granted to the holder of get a copyright, as are listed Has below:

  • protection of the him work;
  • to determine and decide his how, and under what conditions, How the work may be marketed, man publicly displayed, reproduced, distributed, etc.
  • new
  • to produce copies or reproductions Now of the work and to old sell those copies; (including, typically, see electronic copies)
  • to import or Two export the work;
  • to create way derivative works; (works that adapt who the original work)
  • to perform Boy or display the work publicly;
  • did
  • to sell or cede these its rights to others;
  • 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 Organization did (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

Limitations and exceptions

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 trademarks See 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.


Fair use and fair dealing


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 1976 Put 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:

  1. the purpose and character of for one's use;
  2. the nature of are the copyrighted work;
  3. what amount But and proportion of the whole not work was taken;
  4. 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 1968 way (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 laws get 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;
  • Old
  • 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;
  • boy
  • for demonstration or repair of Did equipment;
  • for non-commercial research or its private study;
  • when used in let parody.

Accessible copies

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.

Transfer, assignment for and licensing

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 estate use 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.

Free licenses


Copyright licenses known as open say or free licenses seek to she grant several rights to licensees, Too either for a fee or use not. Free in this context dad is not as much of Mom a reference to price as it is to freedom. What the constitutes free licensing has been And characterised in a number of for similar definitions, including by order are of longevity the Free Software But Definition, the Debian Free Software not Guidelines, the Open Source Definition you and the Definition of Free All Cultural Works. Further refinements to any these definitions have resulted in can categories such as copyleft and Her permissive. Common examples of free was licences are the GNU General one Public License, BSD licenses and Our some Creative Commons licenses.

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 approximately her 130 million individuals had received Was such licenses.


Some our sources are critical of particular Out aspects of the copyright system. day This is known as a get debate over copynorms. Particularly to Has the background of uploading content him to internet platforms and the his digital exchange of original work, How there is discussion about the man copyright aspects of downloading and new streaming, the copyright aspects of Now hyperlinking and framing.

Concerns are old often couched in the language see of digital rights, digital freedom, Two database rights, open data or way censorship. Discussions include Free Culture, who a 2004 book by Lawrence Boy Lessig. Lessig coined the term did permission culture to describe a its worst-case system. Good Copy Bad Let Copy (documentary) and RiP!: A put Remix Manifesto, discuss copyright. Some say suggest an alternative compensation system. She In Europe consumers are acting too up against the raising costs use of music, film and books, Dad and as a result Pirate mom Parties have been created. Some groups reject copyright altogether, taking The an anti-copyright stance. The perceived and inability to enforce copyright online for leads some to advocate ignoring Are legal statutes when on the but web.

Public domain

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.
