What is copyright?

Copyright is the right, expressed under law by the creator(s) of a artistic or creative work, to its ownership.

By stating their ownership under law to the works they produce creators enable themselves to make a living through sales of the rights of these works. Where rights implies that a user has the right to use a creation for a period of time, or for a specific purpose. For the use of these rights the user pays a fee.

This is similar to the fee you pay for the right to use the software that runs your computer, allows you to play games, etc. (Come on you didn't think Microsoft would give it away did you?)

Copyright is denoted by the use of the word - Copyright -  or a symbol shown as (c), or where the letter 'c' is enclosed in a circle . The Copyright symbol denotes that the creator of the work is expressing their rights to the ownership of the work and that unauthorised copying, publishing or performance of that work is in violation of their rights, and the law, unless an agreement is entered into to lease the work for a period of time.
