Your work can be copyrighted in Canada

Plagiarism can violate copyrights.

Here is the Copyright Act of Canada:

Copyrights are the property rights a person has over non-physical property which can also be referred as 'intellectual' rights. Owners of the intellectual property decide who and how others can use their property.

Examples of intellectual property can be copyright: Musics and lyrics, movies, books, computer programs, plays.


But it must be original work that can be fixated into a material form and you must be a Canadian citizen.

What exactly is 'copyright?'

Copyright helps protect the person or groups of people who created and distributed the original material. It helps create ownership and makes sure nobody distributes, tampers with or copies their material without permission.

Why is copyright so important?
