The global copyright system recognizes two types of rights:

  • Economic rights: they allow the owner obtain monetary reward from the use of her works by others. The owner may allow or prohibit the reproduction in various forms, public performances, public displays, broadcasting and adaptation of her work.

  • Moral rights: they protect author’s right to claim authorship and the integrity of her work.

DURATION

 

  • The duration of copyrights varies depending on several factors: date of publication, whether the publication was registered, etc.  There is no common rule for how to calculate copyright duration. Protection is usually automatic from the moment of creation, yet legislation varies and each jurisdiction applies its own set of rules and standards. At Brandia, an attorney may guide you through the initial consultation phase without charge before proceeding to obtain protection of your work.
