Copyright law in all countries grants authors, composers, software writers, website designers, and other creators’ legal protection for their literary and artistic creations, which are usually referred to as “works.” 

Copyright protects a wide variety of original and/or creative expressions, such as novels, poetry, music, paintings, photographs, sculptures, architecture, films, computer programs, video games,  original databases, etc. In most countries, copyright also protects sketches, drawings, or designs of manufactured products. 

Copyright law gives the author  of a work, a bundle of exclusive rights over his work for a limited time. These rights enable him to control his work’s use in many ways and receive remuneration. Copyright law also provides “moral rights” which protect an author’s reputation and integrity.
