What is a copyright?

What is a copyright?Copyright law protects original works of authorship that are in tangible form. Literary, musical, dramatic and artistic works are examples of products that can be copyrighted when in tangible form. A dance cannot be copyrighted unless the choreography is recorded in writing. You also cannot copyright facts, ideas, basic names or titles of works. Once you create a tangible and original work, your copyright is automatic. To strengthen your copyright, include your name, the word “copyright” and the year the work was published. If you want additional security, file your copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office.
