Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. It is for a specific limited period of time. The copyright protects the creators of the work, their legal heir and their successors, and them certain rights under this act. They have the exclusive right to use or authorize others to use the work on agreed terms.

A Copyright Owner's Rights

The primary goal of copyright law is to protect the time, effort, and creativity of the work's creator. As such, the Copyright Act gives the copyright owner certain exclusive rights, including the right to:

  • Reproduce the work
  • Prepare "derivative works" (other works based on the original work)
  • Distribute copies of the work by sale, lease, or other transfer of ownership
  • Perform the work publicly
  • Display the work publicly

Registration of copyright

Copyright and related rights protection is obtained automatically without the need for registration or other formalities. However, Copyright and related rights protection is an essential component in fostering human creativity and innovation. Giving authors, artists and creators incentives in the form of recognition and fair economic reward increases their activity and output and can also enhance the results.The application to register a copyright contains three basic elements:

  • The application form,
  • A non-refundable filing fee, and
  • A non-returnable "deposit" of a copy of your work

The best way to register your copyright is to do it online through the electronic Copyright Office (eCO). Online filing has several advantages including a quicker processing time, lower filing fees, and the ability to track your status online.
