Copyright is a legal term used to describe the rights that creators have over their literary and artistic works.
What can you copyright?
Under the Copyright Act, copyright protection is available for original work of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. To better understand what”works” are protected by copyrights this statement should be examined step-by-step.
First, the work must be “original.” This means that the person claiming copyright protection must have created the work through the application of some independent intellectual or artistic effort.
Second, the work must be “fixed in a tangible medium.” This means that the work must be embodied in a form that is sufficiently permanent or stable to permit it to be perceived, reproduced or otherwise communicated for a period of time.
Benefits of copyright Registration
A common misconception about copyrights is that you must register with the federal government to own copyrights in a work that you have created. This is not correct
- Registering your copyright protected work provides evidence that you are the owner of your work
- Copyright Registration is generally required before you can pursue an infringement action against someone who used your work without authorisation.
- Registration helps preempt the defense of innocent infringement for infringers who claims they didn’t know the work was copyright protected.
- Application filling: After copyright filing, a filing number (diary number), filing date, and filing receipt is issued by the copyright office. After that, the owner has to wait for 30 days for no objection. If objection is filed, it may take another 30 days time.
- Examination: If no objection is filed, then the application is formally examined. Responses to the objection or examination report has to be filed in 30 days.
- Registration: Copyright registration certificate is registered by the copyright after the objections, if any, are overcome to the satisfaction of the copyright office.
