What is copyright?
“Copyright” is the term used to
describe a number of legal rights that exist in original literary, musical,
dramatic or artistic works, and in sound recordings, films, broadcasts and
other creative works. Under copyright laws, these rights are exclusive to the
copyright owner, and enable the copyright owner to control how their work is
used and to prevent unauthorized use.
Originally, copyright laws allowed
the creator of a work to prevent that work from being copied, but copyright
laws have gradually been extended over time, and now allow copyright owners to
prevent and control things like adaptation or public performance of the
copyright work, inclusion of the work in a broadcast, or distribution of the work
both physically and on the Internet. Because these rights are exclusive to the
copyright owner, anyone wanting to do any of these things needs the permission
of the copyright owner.
Copyright can exist in all sorts of
things – for example, music, lyrics, photographs, artwork, books, speeches, TV programs,
movies and videos. Also, what might appear to be a single work can include
several different copyrights owned by various different people. For example, a
music track by a signed artist will often include separate copyrights in the
composition, the lyrics, and the sound recording. Copyright in the music and
lyrics will usually be owned by the artist or music publishing company, and
copyright in the sound recording will usually be owned by the artist’s record label.
Use of that track, including any adaptation of the track or any uploading or
sharing over the Internet, will require the permission of all of these
copyright owners, either directly or through their representatives (for
example, through a collecting society or performing rights organization).
What is copyright infringement, and
how can I avoid it?
Because the rights afforded by
copyright law are exclusive to the copyright owner(s), you will infringe
copyright if you do any of those things without the permission of the copyright
owner(s) – for example, if you copy or adapt a copyright work, or make it
available on the Internet.
The best way to avoid copyright
infringement is to ensure that you don’t use anything created by anyone else.
Simple as that.
If you do use someone else’s work,
make sure you have the necessary permissions – this will usually take the form
of a license from the copyright owner(s), which you may have to pay for. There
are certain instances where you may be able to use excerpts of copyrighted
material without a license – for example, if you use a small part of someone
else’s work for the purposes of criticism or review, or if your use constitutes
“fair use” under applicable law (particularly U.S. law) – however,
discussion of these exceptions is beyond the scope of this guidance. If you
intend to use any part of a copyright work in reliance on any of the statutory
exceptions, you should seek legal advice first.
