Kevin Murphy Copyright Tips
What is copyright?
Copyright is a form of legal protection that grants people who create and produce content the exclusive rights to control certain uses of that content. Examples of the types of content that are protected by copyright include music, artistic works, videos, video games, books and films. Copyright protection means that a copyright owner can control certain uses of their work. Most importantly, this protection gives the copyright owner the right to control the copying of their content, adapting and transmitting the content. Uploading and sharing content via the Internet implicates many of a copyright owner’s exclusive rights. The exclusive nature of copyright means that only the owner can decide who engages in these activities with respect to their content.
There are limitations to copyright. It does not, for example, generally protect ideas or facts. In addition, there are some uses of copyright protected materials are authorized by law. This means, for example, that the copyright owner’s permission is not required to use their work in a video. The precise nature of these exceptions to copyright protection, depends on the national copyright law that applies. In the US, the most important exception is fair use. In the UK, there are fair dealing exceptions for particular uses such as criticism and review or reporting the news. In Brazil, the exceptions are itemized and specific and include quotes with attribution or short excerpts for personal use.
