2. WORKS THAT CAN BE COPYRIGHTED. In seeking the protection of certain exclusive rights by law, it is important to know what kind of original works are eligible to be copyrighted.
3. COPYRIGHT TERMS OR PERIODS. Copyright laws will usually impose a certain limitation in regards to copyright protection limits in terms of time. Though the periods of time will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, copyright laws enforce copyright terms in almost all countries.

Copyright and Commissioned Art Plagiarism Today

4 hours ago

1. One of the most common misconceptions that buyers have when commissioning a work is that, since they commissioned the work, that they own the copyright to it. In the United States and the EU, that is usually not the case. Copyright, by default, goes to the original creator of a particular work. If you write a poem, create a drawing or record a song, you are the owner of its copyright. However, there is one broad exception to that rule in the United StatesL Works-made-for-hire. There are two ways that a work can be considered a work-for-hire. The first is for it to be performed as part of a person’s employment and the other is it be created under a work-for-hire agreement. Though it delves more into employment than copyright law, hiring an artist to create a painting (or any other one-off work) doesn’t usually make them an employee. As such, the copyright doesn’t automatically flow to the bury, as it would with a traditional employer/employee relationship. That leaves a work-for-hire...

Tips to Best Copyright & Protect Your Artwork on the Internet

6 hours ago

1. Registering your work withthe U.S. copyright authorities is a must. Copyright laws, which cover published and unpublished works, ensure other thieves (including other artists) can’t steal your creations without legal repercussions: 1. They protect visual and written works including paintings, essays,photographs, and sculptures, and help establish reproduction limitations. 2. For example: 2.1. A properly copyrighted work can only be copied by its owner, who can also limit the rights of each work. 2.2. So you can make a painting and sell it as prints in a web store like Etsy or Posters.com, but no one else can make prints without your permission. If they do, you can sue them for damages. The most recent copyright law says, “copyright legally belongs to the artist from the moment of creation,”meaning you can challenge a copycat in court if you prove your work is original. 1. But the Office says it’s in every artist’s best interest to register every work because doing so establishes it...

Copyright Wikipedia

3 hours ago

1. The concept of copyright developed after the printing press came into use in Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries. The printing press made it much cheaper to produce works, but as there was initially no copyright law, anyone could buy or rent a press and print any text. Popular new works were immediately re-setand re-published by competitors, so printers needed a constant stream of new material. Fees paid to authors for new works were high, and significantly supplemented the incomes of many...
2. The concept of copyright first developed in England. In reaction to the printing of "scandalous books and pamphlets", the English Parliament passed the Licensing of the Press Act 1662, which required all intended publications to be registered with the government-approved Stationers' Company, giving the Stationers the right to regulate what material could be printed. The Statute of Anne, enacted in 1710 in England and Scotland provided the first legislation to protect copyrights (but not autho...
3. Often seen as the first real copyright law, the 1709 British Statute of Anne gave the publishers rights for a fixed period, after which the copyright expired.The act also alluded to individual rights of the artist. It began, "Whereas Printers, Booksellers, and other Persons, have of late frequently taken the Liberty of Printing ...
