Legal Essentials: Biggest Mistakes when Dealing with Copyrights

What is a copyright? A copyright is a form of intellectual property that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine and decide whether, and under what conditions, the original work may be used by others.

Most creative works that can be created and captured can be protected by a copyright, such as movies, books, websites and images. One of the biggest problems, however, comes from the truth that a copyright is in place at the time it is created. Failing to register the copyright is one of the biggest mistakes that a creator can make.
