The Story aboutCopyright Laws!

So, to prevent a war, the villagers got together to make sure it never happened again

Duration of CopyrightYou can own your own copyright property in perpetuity unless it is given away, sold, or destroyed. BUT, Intellectual Property becomes public property after 50 years after the creator's death.

CopyRight Law: Copyright is a property right. It is a right that one has in relation to the use of his/her private property. It deals with non-physical objects AKA: "INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY"Like Books, Song Lyrics, or a code to a computer program

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!And That was how Copyright Laws became invented!

PLAGERISM!What is it?It's STEALING! If you hand someone else's work and pretend it's your own, THAT'S PLAGERISM!if you don't cite a piece of work properly (including direct quotations, paraphrased ideas, and even turns of phrase) THAT'S PLAGERISM! And it's easy for teachers to catch you! Don't be a thief! Give your OWN ideas! Cite your sources properly!

Criteria for Copyright ProtectionOriginality: Copyrights may only be extended to original works. Fixation: the original work must be expressed in some material form, capable of identification, and having a more or less permanent endurance. ie: One can't copyright a thought in his/her mind, but can copyright a thought expressed on paper.Nationality: For a copyright to exist in Canada, the creator must, at the time the work was created, be a citizen or subject of Canada, or of a foreign country that is a member of a multinational or binational agreement to which Canada is also a member.

Copyright is just one of many different ways to protect Intellectual Property including: Trademarks: distinguishes goods or services of one person or company from those of another. ie: slogans, names of products, distinctive packages, or unique product shapes.Patents: protect new and useful “inventions,” ie: processes, equipment, and manufacturing techniques, but don't cover an object’s artistic or aesthetic qualities.Industrial designs: protect finished manufactured objects, and specifically, their original shape, pattern, ornamentation, or configuration Integrated circuit topographies: protect microchips. Protection is for the topography of a microchip, or its specific configuration of semi-conductors, metals, insulators, and other materials.
