What does copyright mean?

When an individual or a group of individuals create something new and unique, U.S. Copyright law automatically and instantly awards full ownership rights to that creation and the creator.

If you write an original screenplay, an article, or a blog post, or if you display an original photograph, you’ve created something new and unique and protected by copyright law.

We maintain logs with dates and times to prove ownership and first use, as well as revisions and updates to content.

If someone violates copyright by copying a blog post, article or photograph and attribute it to themselves or otherwise attempts to claim or imply authorship, U.S. Copyright Law enables us to obtain compensation, including penalties.

Fair use of published content allows you to use a short excerpt and thumbnail photo without permission, as long as you credit the author and link directly to the appropriate article on
