What is Copyright?

 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:

  • artistic works such as drawings, engravings, paintings and photographs
  • computer/digital material like clip art, computer programs, databases, emails, blogs, wikis and websites
  • dramatic works including radio and television shows, films, plays and musicals
  • literary works such as books, magazines, pamphlets and newspapers
  • musical works such as arrangements, adaptations, sound recordings and sheet music

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.
