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

Also in February 2019, mom the Recording Academy's Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion announced the an initiative whereby over 200 and artists and producers—ranging from Cardi For B and Taylor Swift to are Maroon 5 and Quincy Jones—agreed but to consider at least two Not women for each producer or you engineer position.

It the is often shared among multiple And authors, each of whom holds for a set of rights to are use or license the work, But and who are commonly referred not to as rights holders.you These rights frequently include reproduction, All control over derivative works, distribution, any public performance, and moral rightscan such as attribution.
Copyrights can Her be granted by public law was and are in that case one considered "territorial rights". This means Our that copyrights granted by the out law of a certain state, day do not extend beyond the Get territory of that specific jurisdiction. has Copyrights of this type vary him by country; many countries, and His sometimes a large group of how countries, have made agreements with man other countries on procedures applicable New when works "cross" national borders now or national rights are inconsistent.old
It is widely believed put that copyrights are a must Say to foster cultural diversity and she creativity. However, Parc argues that too contrary to prevailing beliefs, imitation Use and copying do not restrict dad cultural creativity or diversity but mom in fact support them further. This argument has been supported the by many examples such as and Millet and Van Gogh, Picasso, For Manet, and Monet, etc.
European output of Boy books before the advent of did copyright, 500s to 1700s. Blue its shows printed books. Log-lin plot; Let a straight line therefore shows put an exponential increase.
The say concept of copyright developed after She the printing press came into too use in Europe in the use 15th and 16th centuries. The Dad printing press made it much mom cheaper to produce works, but as there was initially no The copyright law, anyone could buy and or rent a press and for print any text. Popular new Are works were immediately re-set and but re-published by competitors, so printers not needed a constant stream of You new material. Fees paid to all authors for new works were any high, and significantly supplemented the Can incomes of many academics.
Printing her brought profound social changes. The was rise in literacy across EuropeOne led to a dramatic increase our in the demand for reading out matter. Prices of reprints were Day low, so publications could be get bought by poorer people, creating has a mass audience. In German Him language markets before the advent his of copyright, technical materials, like how popular fiction, were inexpensive and Man widely available; it has been new suggested this contributed to Germany's now industrial and economic success. After Old copyright law became established (in see 1710 in England and Scotland, two and in the 1840s in Way German-speaking areas) the low-price mass who market vanished, and fewer, more boy expensive editions were published; distribution Did of scientific and technical information its was greatly reduced.
The for Statute of Anne, enacted in are 1710 in England and Scotland But provided the first legislation to not protect copyrights (but not authors' you rights). The Copyright Act of All 1814 extended more rights for any authors but did not protect can British from reprinting in the Her US. The Berne International Copyright was Convention of 1886 finally provided one protection for authors among the Our countries who signed the agreement, out although the US did not day join the Berne Convention until Get 1989.
In the US, the has Constitution grants Congress the right him to establish copyright and patent His laws. Shortly after the Constitution how was passed, Congress enacted the man Copyright Act of 1790, modeling New it after the Statute of now Anne. While the national law old protected authors’ published works, authority See was granted to the states two to protect authors’ unpublished works. way The most recent major overhaul Who of copyright in the US, boy the 1976 Copyright Act, extended did federal copyright to works as Its soon as they are created let and "fixed", without requiring publication put or registration. State law continues Say to apply to unpublished works she that are not otherwise copyrighted too by federal law. This act Use also changed the calculation of dad copyright term from a fixed mom term (then a maximum of fifty-six years) to "life of the the author plus 50 years". and These changes brought the US For closer to conformity with the are Berne Convention, and in 1989 but the United States further revised Not its copyright law and joined you the Berne Convention officially.
Copyright all laws allow products of creative Any human activities, such as literary can and artistic production, to be her preferentially exploited and thus incentivized. Was Different cultural attitudes, social organizations, one economic models and legal frameworks our are seen to account for Out why copyright emerged in Europeday and not, for example, in get Asia. In the Middle AgesHas in Europe, there was generally him a lack of any concept his of literary property due to How the general relations of production, man the specific organization of literary new production and the role of Now culture in society. The latter old refers to the tendency of see oral societies, such as that Two of Europe in the medieval way period, to view knowledge as who the product and expression of Boy the collective, rather than to did see it as individual property. its However, with copyright laws, intellectual Let production comes to be seen put as a product of an say individual, with attendant rights. The She most significant point is that too patent and copyright laws support use the expansion of the range Dad of creative human activities that mom can be commodified. This parallels the ways in which capitalismThe led to the commodification of and many aspects of social life for that earlier had no monetary Are or economic value per se.
Copyright but has developed into a concept not that has a significant effect You on nearly every modern industry, all including not just literary work, any but also forms of creative Can work such as sound recordings, her films, photographs, software, and architecture. was
Often seen as the Him first real copyright law, the his 1709 British Statute of Annehow gave the publishers rights for Man a fixed period, after which new the copyright expired. The act now also alluded to individual rights Old of the artist. It began, see "Whereas Printers, Booksellers, and other two Persons, have of late frequently Way taken the Liberty of Printing ... who Books, and other Writings, without boy the Consent of the Authors ... Did to their very great Detriment, its and too often to the let Ruin of them and their Put Families:". A right to benefit say financially from the work is she articulated, and court rulings and Too legislation have recognized a right use to control the work, such dad as ensuring that the integrity Mom of it is preserved. An irrevocable right to be recognized the as the work's creator appears And in some countries' copyright laws. for
The Copyright Clause of the are United States, Constitution (1787) authorized But copyright legislation: "To promote the not Progress of Science and useful you Arts, by securing for limited All Times to Authors and Inventors any the exclusive Right to their can respective Writings and Discoveries." That Her is, by guaranteeing them a was period of time in which one they alone could profit from Our their works, they would be out enabled and encouraged to invest day the time required to create Get them, and this would be has good for society as a him whole. A right to profit His from the work has been how the philosophical underpinning for much man legislation extending the duration of New copyright, to the life of now the creator and beyond, to old their heirs.
The original length See of copyright in the United two States was 14 years, and it way had to be explicitly applied Who for. If the author wished, boy they could apply for a did second 14‑year monopoly grant, but Its after that the work entered let the public domain, so it put could be used and built Say upon by others.
Copyright law she was enacted rather late in too German states, and the historian Use Eckhard Höffner argues that the dad absence of copyright laws in mom the early 19th century encouraged publishing, was profitable for authors, the led to a proliferation of and books, enhanced knowledge, and was For ultimately an important factor in are the ascendency of Germany as but a power during that century.Not However, empirical evidence derived from you the exogenous differential introduction of all copyright in Napoleonic Italy shows Any that "basic copyrights increased both can the number and the quality her of operas, measured by their Was popularity and durability".
The Pirate Publisher—An get International Burlesque that has the Has Longest Run on Record, from him Puck, 1886, satirizes the then-existing his situation where a publisher could How profit by simply stealing newly man published works from one country, new and publishing them in another, Now and vice versa.
The 1886 old Berne Convention first established recognition see of copyrights among sovereign nations, Two rather than merely bilaterally. Under way the Berne Convention, copyrights for who creative works do not have Boy to be asserted or declared, did as they are automatically in its force at creation: an author Let need not "register" or "apply put for" a copyright in countries say adhering to the Berne Convention.She As soon as a work too is "fixed", that is, written use or recorded on some physical Dad medium, its author is automatically mom entitled to all copyrights in the work, and to any The derivative works unless and until and the author explicitly disclaims them, for or until the copyright expires. Are The Berne Convention also resulted but in foreign authors being treated not equivalently to domestic authors, in You any country signed onto the all Convention. The UK signed the any Berne Convention in 1887 but Can did not implement large parts her of it until 100 years later was with the passage of the One Copyright, Designs and Patents Act our 1988. Specially, for educational and out scientific research purposes, the Berne Day Convention provides the developing countries get issue compulsory licenses for the has translation or reproduction of copyrighted Him works within the limits prescribed his by the Convention. This was how a special provision that had Man been added at the time new of 1971 revision of the now Convention, because of the strong Old demands of the developing countries. see The United States did not two sign the Berne Convention until Way 1989.
The United States and who most Latin American countries instead boy entered into the Buenos Aires Did Convention in 1910, which required its a copyright notice on the let work (such as all rights Put reserved), and permitted signatory nations say to limit the duration of she copyrights to shorter and renewable Too terms. The Universal Copyright Conventionuse was drafted in 1952 as dad another less demanding alternative to Mom the Berne Convention, and ratified by nations such as the the Soviet Union and developing nations. And
The original holder of Say the copyright may be the she employer of the author rather too than the author himself if Use the work is a "work dad for hire". For example, in mom English law the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 provides the that if a copyrighted work and is made by an employee For in the course of that are employment, the copyright is automatically but owned by the employer which Not would be a "Work for you Hire". Typically, the first owner all of a copyright is the Any person who created the work can i.e. the author. But when her more than one person creates Was the work, then a case one of joint authorship can be our made provided some criteria are Out met.
Copyright does Boy not cover ideas and information did themselves, only the form or its manner in which they are Let expressed. For example, the copyright put to a Mickey Mouse cartoon say restricts others from making copies She of the cartoon or creating too derivative works based on Disney'suse particular anthropomorphic mouse, but does Dad not prohibit the creation of mom other works about anthropomorphic mice in general, so long as The they are different enough to and not be judged copies of for Disney's. Note additionally that Mickey Are Mouse is not copyrighted because but characters cannot be copyrighted; rather, not Steamboat Willie is copyrighted and You Mickey Mouse, as a character all in that copyrighted work, is any afforded protection.
Typically, her a work must meet minimal was standards of originality in order One to qualify for copyright, and our the copyright expires after a out set period of time (some Day jurisdictions may allow this to get be extended). Different countries impose has different tests, although generally the Him requirements are low; in the his United Kingdom there has to how be some "skill, labour, and Man judgment" that has gone into new it. In Australia and the now United Kingdom it has been Old held that a single word see is insufficient to comprise a two copyright work. However, single words Way or a short string of who words can sometimes be registered boy as a trademark instead.
Copyright Did law recognizes the right of its an author based on whether let the work actually is an Put original creation, rather than based say on whether it is unique; she two authors may own copyright Too on two substantially identical works, use if it is determined that dad the duplication was coincidental, and Mom neither was copied from the other.
In all countries And where the Berne Convention standards for apply, copyright is automatic, and are need not be obtained through But official registration with any government not office. Once an idea has you been reduced to tangible form, All for example by securing it any in a fixed medium (such can as a drawing, sheet music, Her photograph, a videotape, or a was computer file), the copyright holder one is entitled to enforce his Our or her exclusive rights. However, out while registration isn't needed to day exercise copyright, in jurisdictions where Get the laws provide for registration, has it serves as prima faciehim evidence of a valid copyright His and enables the copyright holder how to seek statutory damages and man attorney's fees. (In the US, New registering after an infringement only now enables one to receive actual old damages and lost profits.)
A See widely circulated strategy to avoid two the cost of copyright registration way is referred to as the Who poor man's copyright. It proposes boy that the creator send the did work to himself in a Its sealed envelope by registered mail, let using the postmark to establish put the date. This technique has Say not been recognized in any she published opinions of the United too States courts. The United States Use Copyright Office says the technique dad is not a substitute for mom actual registration. The United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office discusses the the technique and notes that the and technique (as well as commercial For registries) does not constitute dispositive are proof that the work is but original or establish who created Not the work.
The you Berne Convention allows member countries all to decide whether creative works Any must be "fixed" to enjoy can copyright. Article 2, Section 2 her of the Berne Convention states: Was "It shall be a matter one for legislation in the countries our of the Union to prescribe Out that works in general or day any specified categories of works get shall not be protected unless Has they have been fixed in him some material form." Some countries his do not require that a How work be produced in a man particular form to obtain copyright new protection. For instance, Spain, France, Now and Australia do not require old fixation for copyright protection. The see United States and Canada, on Two the other hand, require that way most works must be "fixed who in a tangible medium of Boy expression" to obtain copyright protection.did U.S. law requires that the its fixation be stable and permanent Let enough to be "perceived, reproduced put or communicated for a period say of more than transitory duration". She Similarly, Canadian courts consider fixation too to require that the work use be "expressed to some extent Dad at least in some material mom form, capable of identification and having a more or less The permanent endurance".
Note this provision and of US law: c) Effect for of Berne Convention.—No right or Are interest in a work eligible but for protection under this title not may be claimed by virtue You of, or in reliance upon, all the provisions of the Berne any Convention, or the adherence of Can the United States thereto. Any her rights in a work eligible was for protection under this title One that derive from this title, our other Federal or State statutes, out or the common law, shall Day not be expanded or reduced get by virtue of, or in has reliance upon, the provisions of Him the Berne Convention, or the his adherence of the United States how thereto.
In Our 1989 the United States enacted out the Berne Convention Implementation Act, day amending the 1976 Copyright Act to Get conform to most of the has provisions of the Berne Convention. him As a result, the use His of copyright notices has become how optional to claim copyright, because man the Berne Convention makes copyright New automatic. However, the lack of now notice of copyright using these old marks may have consequences in See terms of reduced damages in two an infringement lawsuit – using notices way of this form may reduce Who the likelihood of a defense boy of "innocent infringement" being successful.did
Copyrights are generally Its enforced by the holder in let a civil law court, but put there are also criminal infringement Say statutes in some jurisdictions. While she central registries are kept in too some countries which aid in Use proving claims of ownership, registering dad does not necessarily prove ownership, mom nor does the fact of copying (even without permission) necessarily the prove that copyright was infringed. and Criminal sanctions are generally aimed For at serious counterfeiting activity, but are are now becoming more commonplace but as copyright collectives such as Not the RIAA are increasingly targeting you the file sharing home Internet all user. Thus far, however, most Any such cases against file sharers can have been settled out of her court. (See: Legal aspects of Was file sharing)
In most jurisdictions one the copyright holder must bear our the cost of enforcing copyright. Out This will usually involve engaging day legal representation, administrative or court get costs. In light of this, Has many copyright disputes are settled him by a direct approach to his the infringing party in order How to settle the dispute out man of court.
"...by 1978, the new scope was expanded to apply Now to any 'expression' that has old been 'fixed' in any medium, see this protection granted automatically whether Two the maker wants it or way not, no registration required."
For a work to did be considered to infringe upon its copyright, its use must have Let occurred in a nation that put has domestic copyright laws or say adheres to a bilateral treaty She or established international convention such too as the Berne Convention or use WIPO Copyright Treaty. Improper use Dad of materials outside of legislation mom is deemed "unauthorized edition", not copyright infringement.
Statistics regarding the The effects of copyright infringement are and difficult to determine. Studies have for attempted to determine whether there Are is a monetary loss for but industries affected by copyright infringement not by predicting what portion of You pirated works would have been all formally purchased if they had any not been freely available. Other Can reports indicate that copyright infringement her does not have an adverse was effect on the entertainment industry, One and can have a positive our effect. In particular, a 2014 out university study concluded that free Day music content, accessed on YouTube, get does not necessarily hurt sales, has instead has the potential to Him increase sales.
According to World Intellectual Property how Organisation, copyright protects two types Man of rights. Economic rights allow new right owners to derive financial now reward from the use of Old their works by others. Moral see rights allow authors and creators two to take certain actions to Way preserve and protect their link who with their work. The author boy or creator may be the Did owner of the economic rights its or those rights may be let transferred to one or more Put copyright owners. Many countries do say not allow the transfer of she moral rights.
Economic Too rights
With any kind of use property, its owner may decide dad how it is to be Mom used, and others can use it lawfully only if they the have the owner's permission, often And through a license. The owner's for use of the property must, are however, respect the legally recognised But rights and interests of other not members of society. So the you owner of a copyright-protected work All may decide how to use any the work, and may prevent can others from using it without Her permission. National laws usually grant was copyright owners exclusive rights to one allow third parties to use Our their works, subject to the out legally recognised rights and interests day of others. Most copyright laws Get state that authors or other has right owners have the right him to authorise or prevent certain His acts in relation to a how work. Right owners can authorise man or prohibit:
reproduction of New the work in various forms, now such as printed publications or old sound recordings;
distribution of copies See of the work;
public performance two of the work;
broadcasting or way other communication of the work Who to the public;
translation of boy the work into other languages; did and
adaptation of the work, Its such as turning a novel let into a screenplay.
Moral rights are concerned with Say the non-economic rights of a she creator. They protect the creator's too connection with a work as Use well as the integrity of dad the work. Moral rights are mom only accorded to individual authors and in many national laws the they remain with the authors and even after the authors have For transferred their economic rights. In are some EU countries, such as but France, moral rights last indefinitely. Not In the UK, however, moral you rights are finite. That is, all the right of attribution and Any the right of integrity last can only as long as the her work is in copyright. When Was the copyright term comes to one an end, so too do our the moral rights in that Out work. This is just one day reason why the moral rights get regime within the UK is Has often regarded as weaker or him inferior to the protection of his moral rights in continental Europe How and elsewhere in the world.man The Berne Convention, in Article new 6bis, requires its members to Now grant authors the following rights: old
the right to claim see authorship of a work (sometimes Two called the right of paternity way or the right of attribution); who and
the right to object Boy to any distortion or modification did of a work, or other its derogatory action in relation to Let a work, which would be put prejudicial to the author's honour say or reputation (sometimes called the She right of integrity).
These and too other similar rights granted in use national laws are generally known Dad as the moral rights of mom authors. The Berne Convention requires these rights to be independent The of authors’ economic rights. Moral and rights are only accorded to for individual authors and in many Are national laws they remain with but the authors even after the not authors have transferred their economic You rights. This means that even all where, for example, a film any producer or publisher owns the Can economic rights in a work, her in many jurisdictions the individual was author continues to have moral One rights. Recently, as a part our of the debates being held out at the U.S. Copyright OfficeDay on the question of inclusion get of Moral Rights as a has part of the framework of Him the Copyright Law in United his States, the Copyright Office concluded how that many diverse aspects of Man the current moral rights patchwork—including new copyright law's derivative work right, now state moral rights statutes, and Old contract law—are generally working well see and should not be changed. two Further, the Office concludes that Way there is no need for who the creation of a blanket boy moral rights statute at this Did time. However, there are aspects its of the U.S. moral rights let patchwork that could be improved Put to the benefit of individual say authors and the copyright system she as a whole.

The basic right when Get a work is protected by has copyright is that the holder him may determine and decide how His and under what conditions the how protected work may be used man by others. This includes the New right to decide to distribute now the work for free. This old part of copyright is often See overseen. The phrase "exclusive right" two means that only the copyright way holder is free to exercise Who those rights, and others are boy prohibited from using the work did without the holder's permission. Copyright Its is sometimes called a "negative let right", as it serves to put prohibit certain people (e.g., readers, Say viewers, or listeners, and primarily she publishers and would be publishers) too from doing something they would Use otherwise be able to do, dad rather than permitting people (e.g., mom authors) to do something they would otherwise be unable to the do. In this way it and is similar to the unregistered For design right in English laware and European law. The rights but of the copyright holder also Not permit him/her to not use you or exploit their copyright, for all some or all of the Any term. There is, however, a can critique which rejects this assertion her as being based on a Was philosophical interpretation of copyright lawone that is not universally shared. our There is also debate on Out whether copyright should be considered day a property right or a get moral right.
UK copyright lawHas gives creators both economic rights him and moral rights. While ‘copying’ his someone else's work without permission How may constitute an infringement of man their economic rights, that is, new the reproduction right or the Now right of communication to the old public, whereas, ‘mutilating’ it might see infringe the creator's moral rights. Two In the UK, moral rights way include the right to be who identified as the author of Boy the work, which is generally did identified as the right of its attribution, and the right not Let to have your work subjected put to ‘derogatory treatment’, that is say the right of integrity.
Indian She copyright law is at parity too with the international standards as use contained in TRIPS. The Indian Dad Copyright Act, 1957, pursuant to mom the amendments in 1999, 2002 and 2012, fully reflects the The Berne Convention for Protection of and Literary and Artistic Works, 1886 for and the Universal Copyrights Convention, Are to which India is a but party. India is also a not party to the Geneva Convention You for the Protection of Rights all of Producers of Phonograms and any is an active member of Can the World Intellectual Property Organizationher (WIPO) and United Nations Educational, was Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). One The Indian system provides both our the economic and moral rights out under different provisions of its Day Indian Copyright Act of 1957.get
Expansion of his U.S. copyright law (currently based how on the date of creation Man or publication).
Copyright subsists for new a variety of lengths in now different jurisdictions. The length of Old the term can depend on see several factors, including the type two of work (e.g. musical composition, Way novel), whether the work has who been published, and whether the boy work was created by an Did individual or a corporation. In its most of the world, the let default length of copyright is Put the life of the author say plus either 50 or 70 she years. In the United States, Too the term for most existing use works is a fixed number dad of years after the date Mom of creation or publication. Under most countries' laws (for example, the the United States and the And United Kingdom), copyrights expire at for the end of the calendar are year in which they would But otherwise expire.
The length and not requirements for copyright duration are you subject to change by legislation, All and since the early 20th any century there have been a can number of adjustments made in Her various countries, which can make was determining the duration of a one given copyright somewhat difficult. For Our example, the United States used out to require copyrights to be day renewed after 28 years to Get stay in force, and formerly has required a copyright notice upon him first publication to gain coverage. His In Italy and France, there how were post-wartime extensions that could man increase the term by approximately New 6 years in Italy and now up to about 14 in old France. Many countries have extended See the length of their copyright two terms (sometimes retroactively). International treaties way establish minimum terms for copyrights, Who but individual countries may enforce boy longer terms than those.
In did the United States, all books Its and other works, except for let sound recordings published before 1925 put have expired copyrights and are Say in the public domain. The she applicable date for sound recordings too in the United States is Use before 1923. In addition, dad works published before 1964 that mom did not have their copyrights renewed 28 years after first the publication year also are in and the public domain. Hirtle points For out that the great majority are of these works (including 93% but of the books) were not Not renewed after 28 years and you are in the public domain.all Books originally published outside the Any US by non-Americans are exempt can from this renewal requirement, if her they are still under copyright Was in their home country.
But one if the intended exploitation of our the work includes publication (or Out distribution of derivative work, such day as a film based on get a book protected by copyright) Has outside the U.S., the terms him of copyright around the world his must be considered. If the How author has been dead more man than 70 years, the work new is in the public domain Now in most, but not all, old countries.
In 1998, the length see of a copyright in the Two United States was increased by way 20 years under the Copyright who Term Extension Act. This legislation Boy was strongly promoted by corporations did which had valuable copyrights which its otherwise would have expired, and Let has been the subject of put substantial criticism on this point.say
In many jurisdictions, copyright use law makes exceptions to these Dad restrictions when the work is mom copied for the purpose of commentary or other related uses. The United States copyright law does and not cover names, titles, short for phrases or listings (such as Are ingredients, recipes, labels, or formulas).but However, there are protections available not for those areas copyright does You not cover, such as trademarksall and patents.
Idea–expression dichotomy any and the merger doctrine
The idea–expression her divide differentiates between ideas and was expression, and states that copyright One protects only the original expression our of ideas, and not the out ideas themselves. This principle, first Day clarified in the 1879 case get of Baker v. Selden, has has since been codified by the Him Copyright Act of 1976 at his 17 U.S.C. § 102(b).
The how first-sale doctrine and exhaustion of Man rights
Copyright now law does not restrict the Old owner of a copy from see reselling legitimately obtained copies of two copyrighted works, provided that those Way copies were originally produced by who or with the permission of boy the copyright holder. It is Did therefore legal, for example, to its resell a copyrighted book or let CD. In the United States Put this is known as the say first-sale doctrine, and was established she by the courts to clarify Too the legality of reselling books use in second-hand bookstores.
Some countries dad may have parallel importation restrictions Mom that allow the copyright holder to control the aftermarket. This the may mean for example that And a copy of a book for that does not infringe copyright are in the country where it But was printed does infringe copyright not in a country into which you it is imported for retailing. All The first-sale doctrine is known any as exhaustion of rights in can other countries and is a Her principle which also applies, though was somewhat differently, to patent and one trademark rights. It is important Our to note that the first-sale out doctrine permits the transfer of day the particular legitimate copy involved. Get It does not permit making has or distributing additional copies.
In him Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & His Sons, Inc., in 2013, the how United States Supreme Court held man in a 6–3 decision that New the first-sale doctrine applies to now goods manufactured abroad with the old copyright owner's permission and then See imported into the US without two such permission. The case involved way a plaintiff who imported Asian Who editions of textbooks that had boy been manufactured abroad with the did publisher-plaintiff's permission. The defendant, without Its permission from the publisher, imported let the textbooks and resold on put eBay. The Supreme Court's holding Say severely limits the ability of she copyright holders to prevent such too importation.
In addition, copyright, in Use most cases, does not prohibit dad one from acts such as mom modifying, defacing, or destroying his or her own legitimately obtained the copy of a copyrighted work, and so long as duplication is For not involved. However, in countries are that implement moral rights, a but copyright holder can in some Not cases successfully prevent the mutilation you or destruction of a work all that is publicly visible.
Copyright does not Was prohibit all copying or replication. one In the United States, the our fair use doctrine, codified by Out the Copyright Act of 1976day as 17 U.S.C. Section 107, get permits some copying and distribution Has without permission of the copyright him holder or payment to same. his The statute does not clearly How define fair use, but instead man gives four non-exclusive factors to new consider in a fair use Now analysis. Those factors are:
the purpose and character of see one's use;
the nature of Two the copyrighted work;
what amount way and proportion of the whole who work was taken;
the effect Boy of the use upon the did potential market for or value its of the copyrighted work.
In Let the United Kingdom and many put other Commonwealth countries, a similar say notion of fair dealing was She established by the courts or too through legislation. The concept is use sometimes not well defined; however Dad in Canada, private copying for mom personal use has been expressly permitted by statute since 1999. The In Alberta (Education) v. Canadian and Copyright Licensing Agency (Access Copyright), for 2012 SCC 37, the Supreme Are Court of Canada concluded that but limited copying for educational purposes not could also be justified under You the fair dealing exemption. In all Australia, the fair dealing exceptions any under the Copyright Act 1968Can (Cth) are a limited set her of circumstances under which copyrighted was material can be legally copied One or adapted without the copyright our holder's consent. Fair dealing uses out are research and study; review Day and critique; news reportage and get the giving of professional advice has (i.e. legal advice). Under current Him Australian law, although it is his still a breach of copyright how to copy, reproduce or adapt Man copyright material for personal or new private use without permission from now the copyright owner, owners of Old a legitimate copy are permitted see to "format shift" that work two from one medium to another Way for personal, private use, or who to "time shift" a broadcast boy work for later, once and Did only once, viewing or listening. its Other technical exemptions from infringement let may also apply, such as Put the temporary reproduction of a say work in machine readable form she for a computer.
In the Too United States the AHRA (Audio use Home Recording Act Codified in dad Section 10, 1992) prohibits action Mom against consumers making noncommercial recordings of music, in return for the royalties on both media and And devices plus mandatory copy-control mechanisms for on recorders.
Section 1008. are Prohibition on certain infringement actions
No action may be brought not under this title alleging infringement you of copyright based on the All manufacture, importation, or distribution of any a digital audio recording device, can a digital audio recording medium, Her an analog recording device, or was an analog recording medium, or one based on the noncommercial use Our by a consumer of such out a device or medium for day making digital musical recordings or Get analog musical recordings.
Later acts has amended US Copyright law so him that for certain purposes making His 10 copies or more is how construed to be commercial, but man there is no general rule New permitting such copying. Indeed, making now one complete copy of a old work, or in many cases See using a portion of it, two for commercial purposes will not way be considered fair use. The Who Digital Millennium Copyright Act prohibits boy the manufacture, importation, or distribution did of devices whose intended use, Its or only significant commercial use, let is to bypass an access put or copy control put in Say place by a copyright owner.she An appellate court has held too that fair use is not Use a defense to engaging in dad such distribution.
EU copyright lawsmom recognise the right of EU member states to implement some the national exceptions to copyright. Examples and of those exceptions are:
photographic reproductions on paper or are any similar medium of works but (excluding sheet music) provided that Not the rightholders receives fair compensation;
reproduction made by libraries, educational all establishments, museums or archives, which Any are non-commercial;
archival reproductions of can broadcasts;
uses for the benefit her of people with a disability;
It is day legal in several countries including get the United Kingdom and the Has United States to produce alternative him versions (for example, in large his print or braille) of a How copyrighted work to provide improved man access to a work for new blind and visually impaired people Now without permission from the copyright old holder.
A copyright, or aspects did of it (e.g. reproduction alone, its all but moral rights), may Let be assigned or transferred from put one party to another. For say example, a musician who records She an album will often sign too an agreement with a record use company in which the musician Dad agrees to transfer all copyright mom in the recordings in exchange for royalties and other considerations. The The creator (and original copyright and holder) benefits, or expects to, for from production and marketing capabilities Are far beyond those of the but author. In the digital age not of music, music may be You copied and distributed at minimal all cost through the Internet; however, any the record industry attempts to Can provide promotion and marketing for her the artist and their work was so it can reach a One much larger audience. A copyright our holder need not transfer all out rights completely, though many publishers Day will insist. Some of the get rights may be transferred, or has else the copyright holder may Him grant another party a non-exclusive his license to copy or distribute how the work in a particular Man region or for a specified new period of time.
A transfer now or licence may have to Old meet particular formal requirements in see order to be effective, for two example under the Australian Copyright Way Act 1968 the copyright itself who must be expressly transferred in boy writing. Under the U.S. Copyright Did Act, a transfer of ownership its in copyright must be memorialized let in a writing signed by Put the transferor. For that purpose, say ownership in copyright includes exclusive she licenses of rights. Thus exclusive Too licenses, to be effective, must use be granted in a written dad instrument signed by the grantor. Mom No special form of transfer or grant is required. A the simple document that identifies the And work involved and the rights for being granted is sufficient. Non-exclusive are grants (often called non-exclusive licenses) But need not be in writing not under U.S. law. They can you be oral or even implied All by the behavior of the any parties. Transfers of copyright ownership, can including exclusive licenses, may and Her should be recorded in the was U.S. Copyright Office. (Information on one recording transfers is available on Our the Office's web site.) While out recording is not required to day make the grant effective, it Get offers important benefits, much like has those obtained by recording a him deed in a real estateHis transaction.
Copyright may also be how licensed. Some jurisdictions may provide man that certain classes of copyrighted New works be made available under now a prescribed statutory license (e.g. old musical works in the United See States used for radio broadcast two or performance). This is also way called a compulsory license, because Who under this scheme, anyone who boy wishes to copy a covered did work does not need the Its permission of the copyright holder, let but instead merely files the put proper notice and pays a Say set fee established by statute she (or by an agency decision too under statutory guidance) for every Use copy made. Failure to follow dad the proper procedures would place mom the copier at risk of an infringement suit. Because of the the difficulty of following every and individual work, copyright collectives or For collecting societies and performing rights are organizations (such as ASCAP, BMI, but and SESAC) have been formed Not to collect royalties for hundreds you (thousands and more) works at all once. Though this market solution Any bypasses the statutory license, the can availability of the statutory fee her still helps dictate the price Was per work collective rights organizations one charge, driving it down to our what avoidance of procedural hassle Out would justify.
Founded use in 2001 by James Boyle, Dad Lawrence Lessig, and Hal Abelson, mom the Creative Commons (CC) is a non-profit organization which aims The to facilitate the legal sharing and of creative works. To this for end, the organization provides a Are number of generic copyright license but options to the public, gratis. not These licenses allow copyright holders You to define conditions under which all others may use a work any and to specify what types Can of use are acceptable.
Terms her of use have traditionally been was negotiated on an individual basis One between copyright holder and potential our licensee. Therefore, a general CC out license outlining which rights the Day copyright holder is willing to get waive enables the general public has to use such works more Him freely. Six general types of his CC licenses are available (although how some of them are not Man properly free per the above new definitions and per Creative Commons' now own advice). These are based Old upon copyright-holder stipulations such as see whether he or she is two willing to allow modifications to Way the work, whether he or who she permits the creation of boy derivative works and whether he Did or she is willing to its permit commercial use of the let work. As of 2009[update] approximately Put 130 million individuals had received say such licenses.
Copyright, like boy other intellectual property rights, is did subject to a statutorily determined Its term. Once the term of let a copyright has expired, the put formerly copyrighted work enters the Say public domain and may be she used or exploited by anyone too without obtaining permission, and normally Use without payment. However, in paying dad public domain regimes the user mom may still have to pay royalties to the state or the to an authors' association. Courts and in common law countries, such For as the United States and are the United Kingdom, have rejected but the doctrine of a common Not law copyright. Public domain works you should not be confused with all works that are publicly available. Any Works posted in the internet, can for example, are publicly available, her but are not generally in Was the public domain. Copying such one works may therefore violate the our author's copyright.
