What is copyright?

Copyright gives creators of literary or artistic works the exclusive right to decide how their work is used. For a creative work to receive protection, it has to fill certain requirements, i.e., it has to be original and independent.

Copyright protects the expression of an original and independent work but not the actual idea, information, theory or principle itself. Copyright is created automatically when the work is created and does not require publication, registration or the use of the © symbol.
