Nuts & Bolts of Copyrights

It has been said that a copyright attaches when the “pen hits the paper” (when an original work is created and “fixed” in a particular expression) but that doesn’t mean the analysis of what a copyright is and what it protects ends there.

A copyright is a valuable piece of Intellectual Property that protects many types of original works, not just artistic, literary, or musical works. Copyright laws are intended to “feed the artist” and give owners the right to reproduce their works and prevent others from doing so without the owner’s permission.

This webinar discusses the so-called “nuts and bolts of copyright law” beginning with what exactly is a copyright, how to protect a copyright, and finally how to enforce a copyright.
