Copyright mainly is a tool for protecting artistic and literary works. The general principle behind copyright is that the creator decides if and to what extent others can use and copy her or his work. If others use your work without your permission, we can assist you.
What can you protect?
Copyright protection typically applies to artistic works, such as music, stage plays, films, creations in visual arts and architecture, as well as literary works, including maps and drawings, and certain designs. Modern technology has extended copyright protection even further, to products outside the traditional artistic sphere, such as computer programs and user interfaces.
A copyright does not require registration, which means that copyright protection arises automatically, the very moment a work has been created. The copyright protection generally gives the copyright’s owner the exclusive right to reproduce the work, create derivative works based upon the work, distribute copies of the work to the public and to perform and display the work publicly.
