Copyright Copyright Presentation Transcript

  •  Copyright is a form of protection given to authors/creators of original works. This property right can be sold or transferred to others.
  •  Copyright is a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship. The current copyright law, the Copyright Act of 1976, is codified in Title 17 of the U.S. Code.
  •  Copyright law assures ownership, which comes with several rights, that the author has exclusively. For example: › Make copies of the work › Distribute copies of the work › Perform the work publicly › Display the work publicly › Make derivative works
  •  Copyright holder may grant permission or license anyone else to do these things, without affecting their ownership of the actual copyright in their work. For example, an author may permit a television adaptation of their book to be made and broadcast .
  •  The law provides certain ways in which copyright works may be used without the need to first obtain permission from the copyright holder - these include: › Fair use (e.g. to make copies) › Public domain › Library privilege › Copying for examinations and copying for instruction
  •  Copyright covers both published and unpublished works. Copyright protection is automatic at the moment the work is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible.
  •  Literary works Dramatic works Musical works Artistic works
  • Not everything is protected by copyright law. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation.
  •  Copyright protects original works of authorship, while a patent protects inventions or discoveries. A trademark protects words, phrases, symbols, or designs identifying the source of the goods or services of one party and distinguishing them from those of others.
  •  They want to provide “universal access” to research, education and culture. Copyright was created long before the emergence of the Internet, and can make it hard to legally perform actions we take for granted on the network: copy, paste, edit source, and post to the Web. The default setting of copyright law requires all of these actions to have explicit permission, granted in advance, whether you’re an artist, teacher, scientist, librarian, policymaker, or just a regular user. In order for Creative Commons to achieve the vision of universal access. They provide a free, public, and standardized infrastructure that creates a balance between the reality of the Internet and the reality of copyright laws.
  •  Under the Teach Act, the Copyright law provides educators with a separate set of rights in addition to fair use, to display and perform others´ works in the classroom. These rights are entitled in Section 110(1) of the Copyright Act, and apply to any original work an educator wants to use.
