The following copyright information is provided for informational purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice. You should contact a licensed attorney should you require legal advice or representation. A copyright is a form of intellectual property protection provided to authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other intellectual works. A copyright is owned by the creator of it, typically. Copyrights are registered by the Library of Congress’ Copyright Office. The Copyright Act of 1976 affords a copyright owner the exclusive right to:
- reproduce the copyrighted work;
- prepare derivative works;
- distribute copies or phonorecords;
- perform the copyrighted work publicly; and
- display the copyrighted work publicly.
A copyright protects the form of expression rather than the subject matter. For example, if Traverse Legal PLC writes an article outlining the steps to cyberpiracy prevention, Traverse Legal PLC has the right to prevent others from copying the article, sharing the article with others without permission, giving a presentation from the article, or publicly displaying the article on a website or otherwise. A violation of a copyright owner’s rights is known as copyright infringement.
The fact that a work is available on the Internet or somewhere else does not make it available for any use. Permission may be required to use a copyrighted work that is not in the public domain or subject to fair use. Not only are you prohibited from using all the rights reserved by Traverse Legal PLC in its copyrighted works, but Traverse Legal PLC must take down content uploaded by third parties that infringes upon some else’s copyright. If you believe anything hosted on a Traverse Legal PLC website infringes your copyright, please follow the Digital Millennium Copyright Act steps below:
