Copyright Protection for Authors, Publishers, Entrepenuers, Consumers of Original, etc.

Learn the Copyright rules in place to ensure your works are protected by law

– Are you a creator of original content who wants to:
– ensure your works are protected?
– know when Copyright Protected works can be used lawfully by others?
– know how to protect your works internationally?;
– understand the action that can be taken in the event of a breach of copyright law?
– learn how to make money from Copyright Protected works without compromising the level of protection provided?;

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, learning about copyright laws shall give you more confidence when monetizing original content for sale online because you shall be aware of the extent of protection afforded to everybody under the law, and the steps that can be taken to secure worldwide copyright protection.

The proliferation of the internet around the globe has opened up amazing opportunities for creators of original works (i.e. authors, musicians, film / video producers, studio engineers, etc) to monetise their content by selling it on a wide range of online platforms. This allows creators of original works the opportunity to receive a reward for all their hard work, while simultaneously bringing joy to the lives of those using the material. However, while the internet has undoubtedly increased the commercial opportunities for content creators worldwide, it has also made it easier for some users to share content to large numbers of people without obtaining the prior permission of the creator of that material.

The good news is that the law does provide a degree of protection to certain types of works. However, copyright laws differ from country-to-county and region-to-region. Therefore, understanding what published material shall be protected, the extent of that protection, the steps to take to protect works in different countries / regions, and the action that can be taken where your works have been used contrary to copyright laws, can be difficult for the creators of works.

The Advantage of Learning about Copyright Protection

The advantage of learning about copyright protection laws for the creators of works is that you will know how to ensure your material is adequately protected under the law.
