Study Notes

Intellectual Property refers to the legal protection given to creations of the mind such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols and names used in commerce. One of its key components is Copyright, which protects original expression when it's recorded in any tangible form such as books, paintings, films, photographs, and music. This means that if you create something like a book, painting, movie or song, you have the right to stop others from using your work without permission.

Copyright law grants creators exclusive rights to their material including reproduction, distribution, performance, adaptation, translation and display. It also gives them the right to get paid every time someone uses their creative work. For instance, if you put together photos into a slide show presentation, this would constitute a new work that can be protected by copyright laws. However, there are exceptions where you don't need permission to use someone else's copyrighted material, such as fair dealing under Canadian law.

In addition, some countries extend copyright beyond the individual creator to corporations and other entities like universities who may hold intellectual property rights over certain things they produce. In these cases, the corporation owns all the profits made off anything created while working with them. Another exception occurs with 'orphan works,' where the owner cannot be found after searching for a good faith effort; this allows people to share those works freely even though they might still technically belong to someone else.

By understanding how copyright laws apply to our creative expressions, we can ensure that we receive appropriate recognition and compensation for what we create.

Test your knowledge on intellectual property and copyright law, which provide legal protection to various creations of the mind. Explore concepts such as exclusive rights for creators, exceptions to copyright laws, and the extension of copyright to corporate entities.
