CopyRight by Hector Guerra, Loucky Horgan, and Joseph O'Mara

Copyright is the exclusive legal given to an originator or an assignee to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material, and to authorize others to do the same.

Which Basically means to protect what you make.

Some other legal terms that protect IP's are Patents and Trademarks.

History of Copyright

The world's first copyright law was the Statute of Anne, enacted in England in 1710. This Act introduced for the first time the concept of the author of a work being the owner of its copyright, and laid out fixed terms of protection.

Who Owns it?

Copyrights are generally owned by the people who create the works of expression, with some important exceptions: If a work is created by an employee in the course of his or her employment, the employer owns the copyright.

The term public domain has two senses of meaning. Anything published is out in the public domain in the sense that it is available to the public.
