Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and sumbols, names and images used in commerce. Intellectual property in law includes patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.
Copyright is the exclusive legal right, 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. It is one of they types of Intellectual Property.
Whenever an author or creator creates an original work which is eligible for copyright protection, and puts that original work in a fixed form, the author immediately receives copyright protection for that work. So everyone is eligible to register their original work to the Copyriht Law Ofiice; it costs $35 for a single copyright registration.
