What is a copyright?

When an individual or a company creates something new, copyright law automatically gives full ownership rights to that creation and the creator.

For example, if you write a screenplay, an article or a blog post, or if you display a photograph, you’ve just created something new. Once you put that creation out into the world and allow the public to access it, copyright law kicks in to help make sure that someone else can’t steal a part of (or all of) your creation.

We maintain logs with dates and times to prove first use.

If someone does violate a copyright, such as copy a blog post and attribute it to himself, or try to claim authorship, copyright law makes it possible to enforce your rights against the other and maintain your ownership.

Fair use of published content allows you to use some content with restrictions, such as a description promoting the creator’s product and linking to the creator’s web site.
