Copyright

What is a copyright?

Copyright is a legal right afforded to authors in the US of “original works of authorship”that are fixed in a tangible form of expression. Technically, common law copyrights start upon creation of the work. However, filing the work with the U.S. Copyright Office creates federal rights to protect the mark in the U.S. and to keep others from using it.

What can I file a Copyright for?

Examples of copyrightable works include:

Literary works

Musical works, including any accompanying words

Dramatic works, including any accompanying music

Pantomimes and choreographic works

Pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works

Motion pictures and other audiovisual works

Sound recordings, which are works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds

Architectural works
