Copyrights: The Basics
In the United States, copyright is a form of protection provided by the government to the authors of "original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works." This protection is available to both published and unpublished works, regardless of the nationality or domicile of the author. It is unlawful for anyone to violate any of the rights provided by copyright law to the owner of the copyright.
Copyright protection exists from the time the work is created in a fixed, tangible form of expression. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author, or those deriving their rights through the author, can rightfully claim copyright.
It is important to note that including attribution on a copied work (for example, putting the author's name on it) will not relieve you from a copyright infringement claim. If the work is protected by copyright, you must obtain permission from the copyright holder to reuse it.
