A copyright is a legal right granted to the creator of an original work. A copyright protects original works of authorship that are “fixed” in some permanent or semi-permanent medium. It can cover everything from literary works to artistic works, music to movies, architectural designs to computer software, and various other works of authorship. The duration of copyrights depends on several factors, including when the original work was created, where, and by whom.
