WHAT IS COPYRIGHT?
Copyright gives the creators of a wide range of material, such as literature, art, music, sound recordings, films and broadcasts, economic rights enabling them to control use of their material in a number of ways, such as by making copies, issuing copies to the public, performing in public, broadcasting and use on-line.
The creator also has the right to prevent: others communicating a work to the public by electronic transmission, e.g. broadcasting it or putting it on a website; others making available to the public a recording of a performance by electronic transmission, e.g. putting it on a website.
Copyright is regulated by law, the main statute in the UK being the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (CDPA). This was amended in October 2003 by the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003 which incorporated into UK law the changes required by the EU Copyright Directive.
