What can I do with my copyright?

Possessing a copyright allows you to protect your work and stops others from using it without your permission. You get credible evidence that your work existed the moment you created it.  Moreover, anyone can easily contact you about your work; if someone wants to use your creation, he/she is able to contact you to ask for your permission. You can monetize your works through licensing or the alienation of rights. Ultimately, you have legal proof to support your defense in a courtroom.

Copyright does not protect ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of doing something and applies only to work that exists in a tangible form.
