What is copyright?

Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S . Code) to the authors of "original works of authorship," including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. This protection is available to both published and unpublished works, and is granted automatically from the moment of creation.
