A copyright provides certain rights to the author (creator) of an original authorship of an artistic two and three dimensional form and of writings that may be in the form of books, plays, recordings, music, and software. These rights include the right to prevent reproduction, making derivative work of performance or publication of the copyright protected work.

Protecting artistic creations

Copyright registration is voluntary. As soon as a form of expression is completed, the rights are vested, but federal registration must be obtained to enforce these rights in the federal courts.
