What is Copyright?

Copyright refers to the exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical materials. Rights related to copyright include those of performing artists in their performances, producers of phonograms in their recordings, and those of broadcasters in their radio and television programmes.

Copyright owner's exclusive rights

Any or all of the copyright owner’s exclusive rights, or any subdivision of those rights, may be transferred, but such a transfer is not valid unless it is in writing and signed by the owner of the rights conveyed or such owner’s duly authorized agent. A written agreement is not required for the transfer of a nonexclusive right.
