Copyright Law--US

 
US COPYRIGHT LAW
NOTE: This is US Copyright Law.  It may not apply in other countries.  At the same time, if you are in a country other than the US, this law may apply to you if you use text and/or pictures in the US for advertising, promotion, etc.  Check International Law for this.
 
This page is not meant to advise, etc. to clients or business associates in any way about their specific copyright issues.  They should contact a practicing lawyer in their state for such.
 
However, this does outline the basics of the copyright law, as provided by the US government; and then following is a portion that I have cut out that seems most pertinent.

Copyright Basics

 

Below is just the section mentioned--the whole law was too long to include.

HOW TO SECURE A COPYRIGHT

Copyright Secured Automatically upon Creation

The way in which copyright protection is secured is frequently misunderstood. No publication or registration or other action in the Copyright Office is required to secure copyright. (See following Note.) There are, however, certain definite advantages to registration. See "Copyright Registration."

Copyright is secured automatically when the work is created, and a work is "created" when it is fixed in a copy or phonorecord for the first time. "Copies" are material objects from which a work can be read or visually perceived either directly or with the aid of a machine or device, such as books, manuscripts, sheet music, film, videotape, or microfilm. "Phonorecords" are material objects embodying fixations of sounds (excluding, by statutory definition, motion picture soundtracks), such as cassette tapes, CDs, or LPs. Thus, for example, a song (the "work") can be fixed in sheet music (" copies") or in phonograph disks (" phonorecords"), or both.

If a work is prepared over a period of time, the part of the work that is fixed on a particular date constitutes the created work as of that date.
