Copyright Law

Copyright law grants a copyright owner a set of exclusive rights to his or her expression of an idea or information. Copyright may subsist in a wide range of creative, intellectual, or artistic forms, including poems, plays, novels, movies, musical compositions and recordings, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and software.
