Copyright is a legal concept, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to its use and distribution, usually for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the creator of intellectual wealth (e.g. the photographer of a photograph or the author of a book) to receive compensation for their work and be able to financially support themselves.
Copyright is a form of intellectual property (as patents, trademarks and trade secrets are), applicable to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete.
It is often shared, then percentage holders are commonly called rights holders: legally, contractually and in associated “rights” business functions. Generally rights holders have “the right to copy”, but also the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other related rights.
It is a legal offence for anyone to use information that has been created by another individual (or business) without their express written permission.
