What constitutes a work? How to protect a work? What to do with it?
We help pick up the right trail in the thickets of copyrights.
Copyright protects a work that constitutes any individual creative effort embodied in any form, regardless of its value, purpose or means of expression. As no registration or fee is required it is very easy to acquire copyright, which cannot be said, however, of proving the holding the copyright, hence the popularity of industrial property rights system.
To be regarded as work, an intangible asset must meet the following requirements:
- be created by man (a natural creation may not be considered work);
- be embodied in any form - allow the presentation of the work to persons other than the author (fixed, oral etc.);
- be a creative effort - a new creation of the intellect, not a copy of the existing ones.
