Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.

Copyright protects works such as poetry, movies, streaming audio and video, video games, plays, paintings, sheet music, recorded music performances, novels, software code, sculptures, photographs, choreography, and architectural designs.

To qualify for copyright protection, a work must be “fixed in a tangible medium of expression.” In addition, the work must be original — that is, independently created by the author. It doesn’t matter if an author’s creation is similar to existing works, or even if it is lacking in quality, ingenuity or aesthetic merit. So long as the author created it without copying from someone else, the results are protected by copyright. In order to qualify for protection the work must also be the result of creative effort on the part of its author. Here is a list of various copyright services we provide:
