Copyright (©) is the legal right to original works of literary and/or creative nature, for example musical compositions, a book, a painting or a motion picture. An innovation, a design or a trademark may be protected by copyright even though it has not been registered.

What does copyright mean?

Copyright gives the creator of the intellectual work the exclusive right to make copies of the work, and to make the work available to the public. The Copyright Act also gives the owner non-profit rights, i.e. the right to be named as good practice dictates and the right to intervene against infringing use.

Copyright cannot be registered, but must be determined by Court of Law.
