What is Copyright?

Copyright is a legal right which grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. There are various intellectual properties or rather a person's art which can be copyrighted. Copyright is registered under the Copyright Act of 1957 which protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and cinematography as well as sound recordings from unauthorized uses.

Copyright is also transferable, i.e., based on certain contracts or agreements you can transfer your copyright to any other person. If your Copyright is registered then no other person can copy your content in any form since you have the exclusive right to sue that person restricting to copy or reproduce your unique content. However, in case of transfer of copyright, you lose your provision to sue the person. Copyright consists of multiple rights like the rights of reproduction, adaptation, communication to the public, and translation of the work.

It should be kept in mind that ideas, procedures or methods of operation cannot be copyrighted. Because these are are something which comes from a person's mind. Moreover, based on the work you would need to file a separate application for separate works. It is not mandatory to get copyright for your intellectual property/work, but to protect the original content, it is always advisable to get your work copyrighted. It motivates the owner to do more work and others to make their own unique content.

    Copyright prevents your work from being stolen or misused by others.
    Copyright gives the creator of a piece of intellectual property (this includes Literary, Musical, Dramatic, or Artistic work; not ideas) the sole right to produce and reproduce their work.
    These rights include the right to authorize others to produce or reproduce your work as well as the right to broadcast your work.
    Copyright allows the holder of the copyright to object to uses of their work that they find morally objectionable.


Copyright does not allow you to allow others to use or distribute your work in public and this can slow your work to be published or not published at all.
You must own the copyright to be able to exercise the rights that it grants, and just being the creator of the work does not always guarantee ownership.
