Copyright means the right to copy intellectual property that belongs to someone other than you. Copyright has rights for both authors and users in an effort to create a balanced and fair use of copyrighted works.
In Canada, copyright protection is automatic upon the creation of a work. You own the copyright for a work as soon as you create something original regardless of the format:
Only the copyright owner has the right to decide when and how the work is copied.
And remember even if a work does not have a copyright symbol ©, the work is still protected under The Copyright Act.
Creative Commons is a non-profit organization that enables creators to share their materials via a set of copyright licenses. There are standardized licenses that give the public permission to share and use works based on the rights the creator has chosen. Rights vary from some rights reserved to all rights reserved. The user must read the accompanying license to know how the material can be used.
