Copyright Law

A copyright (international symbol: ©) is a form of protection provided by the United States. This protection gives exclusive rights to the people of “original works of authorship.” 

The copyright law gives the owner of the copyright the exclusive right to authorize others “to copy” his or her original creation; and is available to both published and unpublished works.

An original work of authorship includes:

  • movies
  • drawings
  • books
  • works of art
  • music
  • textile and jewelry designs
  • photographs
  • lyrics
  • computer programs
  • paintings
  • architectural works, including blue prints and maps
