What is Copyright?

Which types of work are subject to copyright?

Copyright ownership gives the owner the exclusive right to use the work, with some exceptions. When a person creates an original work fixed in a tangible medium, he or she automatically owns the copyright to the work.

Many types of works are eligible for copyright protection, for example:

  • Audiovisual works, such as TV shows, movies, and online videos
  • Sound recordings and musical compositions
  • Written works, such as lectures, articles, books, and musical compositions
  • Visual works, such as paintings, posters, and advertisements
  • Video games and computer software
  • Dramatic works, such as plays and musicals

The Copyright Office has information online; you can check with a lawyer if you want to know more.
