Copyright Protection

The Copyright is the legal right or a set of exclusive rights given by the government to the creator of any original work, regarding its utilization, reproduction, and commercial uses, freely and exclusively, for the specified period of time. This copyright is a part of the Intellectual property Law, and gives protection to all original and unique works performed using the intellectual property of the human mind. The types of works which come under this copyright protection are all literary, artistic, dramatic, musical, etc., works printed, fixed, or recorded in any tangible medium of expression. Here, it may be noted that the copyright protects only the way things are expressed or presented, and not the facts, ideas, systems, or methods, etc., used by the intellectual works.

Besides the national copyright offices, the most prominent international treaties for providing copyright protection are - the Berne Convention, the Universal Copyright Convention (UCC), and the TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) Agreement administered by the World Trade Organization (WTO).
