Copyright Infringement

Copyrights protect the original expression of ideas in a broad spectrum of media – including software, instruction manuals, novels, music, sculptures, paintings, and dramatic works. Copyright ownership vests in the “author,” or creator of the work, or in an employer if the work is created by an employee and is within the scope of his or her employment. Owners of copyrights have the exclusive rights to reproduce, adapt, publicly distribute, publicly display, and perform their works.

  • Computer software
