Copyright in art.

For artists, an understanding of how copyright works is extremely important. As soon as an artwork leaves author’s hands, there is a risk that other people use it inappropriately. 

Copyright gives artists rights which provide artistic protection and ensure that authors can profit from what they’ve made: the right to make copies, distribute those copies, perform or display the work publicly, or make works that derive from the original.

There are different categories of artistic works that are protectable by copyright: musical works; dramatic works; literary works; pictorial, graphic and sculptural works; audiovisual works and choreographed works; architectural works; even computer code and video games (can qualify as literary audiovisual works). For a work to be copyrightable it must be original and in a tangible form. A painting is protected the moment it’s painted, and a poem is protected the moment it’s written down. But eventually you will need to prove that you are the author and you need to have confirmation of creation time.

Copyright infringement has become a major issue in a digital world. The more followers you have on the Internet, the greater the chance of copyright infringement. Remember that it is your responsibility to know your rights and protect your creations. And will help you on this journey.
