What is a "copyright"?

A copyright is a legal right that protects creative content like movies, TV shows, books, sound recordings, music videos, photographs, published articles and other artistic works. The point of copyright law is to encourage the development of new creative content by giving the original creator certain exclusive rights to use the content.

Who is the copyright owner?

The original creator of the content owns the copyright to start with. The copyright owner can give someone else permission to use the content and can even sell the copyright to someone else.

What rights does a copyright owner have?

Only the copyright owner can copy, upload, display, distribute, publicly perform, and sell his or her content.

If I purchase a copy of a copyrighted work, do I own the copyright?

No. There is a difference between owning a physical copy of a copyrighted work and owning the copyright. If you buy a music CD, you own that copy of the CD, but you do not own the copyright to the songs on that CD.
