Infringement on copyrighted material, whether prose, graphic images, music, audio tape, video or computer materials, is a serious offense of federal law and contrary to the ethical standards of employees and students alike. (1)

Violations of copyright laws can result in criminal or civil suits. It is therefore required that all reproduction of copyrighted material be done strictly in accordance with applicable law. Unless otherwise allowed as “fair use” by federal law, permission must be obtained from the copyright owner prior to reproduction of material in any form. Fair use is based upon the following: ▪ the purpose and character of the use, ▪ the nature of the copyrighted work, ▪ the amount of and substantially of the portion used, and ▪ the affect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work. (1)

Any inaccurate statement or story spread through the use of computers will not be tolerated. The use of digital manipulation on photographs with the…...

...Copyright Implications IT236 Intro to Web Design I This was an interesting paper for me to write as I had never thought of copyright and websites or affecting websites. Now that I have been taking and studying this class, I now realize the importance of copyright and how it affects the creation of a website, especially with all the hard work involved. Creating a website not only involves the creation, idea but all the hard work invested in it. This is were it is important to protect your website by implementing one of the two methods of protection which happens to be copyright. This is the primary source for legal protection, which is the most popular form of protection in use today. It is the easiest and most popular form of protecting ones website as it involves three items that have to be considered like ownership, notice and registration. You can’t use the work or image of someone else to create your own which is the same, as you cannot use another’s copyrighted work. This is as the copyright owner has rights not only for his work but also on any derivative works, which is created, based on the original work. The implications of copyright law is that it tis the legal use of the owner of a website that his website images aren’t copied or used by anyone else. Some components of copyright law include financial incentive, fair use of the website, the public domain, advances in technology and of course register copyright.

Copyright year, providing they are passed by the House of Lords, House of Commons and European Commission. Online copyright infringers are to be issued with the first letters warning them about their behaviour, with such notifications due to be issued from early in 2014. The UK Digital Economy Act, like it or loathe it, has been surrounded by an odour from the beginning, and the stench is getting ever more vile. Documents released from Lord Mandelson’s office under the Freedom of Information Act indicated despite there being public consultation then, the public consultation process was a waste of time, and that almost nothing any participant could have said would have made a difference. PPUK Chair Loz Kaye stated that these documents show how outrageously complicit everyone from the entertainment industry, politicians and unions were in framing the Digital Economy Act. It establishes a system of law which aims to first increase the ease of tracking down and suing persistent infringers that is through the rightsholders gathering lists of Internet Protocol addresses which they believe have infringed their copyrights. They would then send each IP address to the appropriate Internet Service Provider, newly-defined in the Act as a provider of IP addresses along with a "Copyright Infringement Report". The next stage in proceedings involves the rightsholder requesting a "Copyright Infringement List" from the ISP. This contains an anonymous list of all subscribers who have "reached......

...Copyright is a series of economic rights that give their owner the exclusive right to the object it protects. Copyright protection is automatic upon creation of the work. The symbol “©” is only used for notification purposes, so other parties understand that the work is protected by copyright, however it is not required for the protection to exist. Copyright protects subject-matters, which are mentioned in the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). These subject-matters include “works”, such as: * literary works; * dramatic works; * musical works; and * artistic works including works of artistic craftsmanship. Another subject-matter protected by copyright is subject-matter other than works, such as: * films; * sound recordings; * broadcasts; and * published editions. In order for works to be copyrighted, they must satisfy two conditions. 1) The work must be original. This condition, however, does not apply for subject matters other than works. 2) The work must be in a material form. Copyright does not protect information, ideas, concepts, styles, methods, or anything that has not been physically published. It only protects the expression of ideas in any of the categories mentioned above. As a result, copyright protection only occurs when an idea, concept or information is written down, expressed visually, filmed, recorded or stored on a form of mass-storage device. In a general sense, the owner of copyright is the author of any form of works,...

Copyright Infringement

...COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. Copyright infringement is the use of work under  copyright, infringing the copyright holder's exclusive rights, such as the right to reproduce, distribute, display or perform the copyrighted work, or to make derivative works, without permission from the copyright holder, which is typically a publisher or other business representing or assigned by the work's creator. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OCCURS WHEN THE COPYRIGHT OWNER'S RIGHTS ARE VIOLATED To fully understand copyright infringement, you must understand what rights you hold as a copyright holder. You own more than just the rights to reproduce the work filed with the US Copyright Office. An owner of a copyright owns a “bundle” of rights. Each of these rights can be sold or assigned separately. Copyright infringement occurs when one of those rights are used without the express consent of the copyright owner. The rights owned by the owner of a copyright include: The Right to Reproduce the Work. This is the right to reproduce, copy, duplicate or transcribe the work in any fixed form. Copyright infringement would occur if someone other than the copyright owner made a copy of the work and resold it. The Right to Derivative Works. This is the right to modify the work to create a new work. A new work that is based upon an existing work is a "derivative work." Copyright infringement would occur here if someone wrote a screenplay based on his favorite John Grisham book and sold or distributed the......

...Copyright Assignment As a professional scriptwriter, “failing to understand copyright can be a big problem for the scriptwriter both in terms of his own work or the work of others”(Almeida). I need to understand copyright laws so that I can avoid copyright infringement, but also protect my own work as well. The first thing needed to do to make sure that copyright infringement is being avoided is to understand copyright law. The most basic thing to understand first is, “what is infringement?” If someone, reproduces work in copies, prepares derivative works based upon the work, distributes copies of the work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, performs the work publicly, or displays the copyrighted work publicly without any exclusive rights from the owner of that work, they are an infringer of the copyright of the author (Stopping Copyright Infringement). After knowing what infringement is brings the question, “what can be copyrighted?” Literary works, paintings, photographs, drawings, films, music (and its lyrics), choreography, sculptures, and many other things can be copyrighted. Generally the law does not protect the underlying ideas (How to Avoid Copyright Infringement). “Basically, copyrights protect the ‘original works of authorship’ that are fixed in a tangible form of expression” (Almeida). Understanding these laws is vital to making sure copyright infringement is being avoided. The next step would be to make sure that nothing in the script was......

...Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. This is usually only for a limited time. The exclusive rights are not absolute but limited by limitations and exceptions to copyright law, including fair use. Copyright is a form of intellectual property, applicable to certain forms of creative work. Under US copyright law, legal protection attaches only to fixed representations in a tangible medium.[1] It is often shared among multiple authors, each of whom holds a set of rights to use or license the work, and who are commonly referred to as rightsholders.[2] These rights frequently include reproduction, control over derivative works, distribution, public performance, and "moral rights" such as attribution.[3] Copyrights are considered territorial rights, which means that they do not extend beyond the territory of a specific jurisdiction. While many aspects of national copyright laws have been standardized through international copyright agreements, copyright laws vary by country.[4] Typically, the duration of a copyright spans the author's life plus 50 to 100 years (that is, copyright typically expires 50 to 100 years after the author dies, depending on the jurisdiction). Some countries require certain copyright formalities to establishing copyright, but most recognize copyright in any completed work, without formal registration. Generally, copyright is enforced as a......

...what for two reasons: They are creating a work, either alone or in collaboration with others, and want to know who will own what or who will have what rights in the finished work. They want to use another's work beyond the bounds of fair use and need to know whom to ask for permission. The basics of who owns what are the same regardless of which concern one has, so we will cover the basics first, then show how those rules apply in the two situations above, and finally address how to protect your work. The basics The author is usually the owner. Except when the work-for-hire rules apply: The author's employer owns work(s) created by an employee within the scope of employment, or that fall within one or more of the nine statutory categories, where an agreement commissioning the work is in writing and signed by the creator or creators before work begins The nine statutory categories include: contribution to a collective work; part of a movie or other audiovisual work; a translation; a supplementary work; a compilation; an instructional text; a test; answer material for a test; or an atlas. If a work does not fit within the statutory definition of a work-for-hire, the employer may still own it if the author assigns the copyright to the employer or contractor. An author-owner is free to assign copyright to anyone, so a written contract can change these basic rules. Many publishers require assignment of copyright as a condition of......

... Copyright laws were created to protect the rights of copyright owners. They are designed to prevent the unauthorized use of materials without the permission of the copyright holder (Bitlaw, 2010). There are five exclusive rights covered under the Copyright Act (Bitlaw, 2010). Though all of the rights may not directly pertain to all web site development, it is imperative for web site designers to be familiar with the Act to avoid violating any part of it intentionally or unintentionally. The five exclusive rights are; the right to reproduce, the right to prepare derivative works, the right to distribute copies, the right to perform, and the right to display (Bitlaw, 2010). The right to reproduce belongs to the copyright holder (Bitlaw, 2010). This means the copyright holder is the only person that has the legal right to reproduce or copy any part of the work (Bitlaw, 2010). The right to prepare derivative works is the same as reproducing in a sense, but it is regarding transferring the copy written information to another form such as video or film (Bitlaw, 2010). The copyright holder is the only person that can legally distribute the crated material as well as perform publically any part of the work (Bitlaw, 2010). The copyright law covers most works imaginable including literary work, graphics, art, choreography, music, and theatrical performances (Bitlaw, 2010). Web designers can take steps to avoid violating any part of the copyright laws. When......
