Have you ever created a piece of

intellectual property


What questions come to mind when you hear the word



If you own

intellectual property

, do you think having it copy written will help you?

Why? Why not?


Copyright Law: Background

When most people think of the word, “


,” they think about the rights of owners to control access to their intellectual property. This is accurate, but it is not the whole story.

The U.S. Constitution says, the purpose of

copyright is to promote the spread of knowledge and innovation. The writers believed that encouraging the development of new ideas and information serves society as a whole.


Copyright Law

A copyright is a form of intellectual property law that protects original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works.A copyright lists the publisher of a work and the year in which the work was published. All books must have a copyright.Copyright Law does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation.


Copyright Law

As soon as something is created, copyright is automatically implied - no copyright notice or procedures are required; however, registering works of intellectual property not only protects the owner from unauthorized usage but can also provide greater rewards should litigation become necessary.


Critical Thinking: Discussion Think Pair Share

How do you think the internet affects

intellectual property


Do you think the internet has affected the economic value of

intellectual property

? If so, how?



The Internet and other digital technologies have made it easier than ever to share, use, copy, modify and distribute still and moving images, and sounds that are the “

intellectual property

” of others.

 There are people who believe that

intellectual property

should be unprotected and unrestricted. They, like the original writers U.S. Copyright Law, believe that individual creativity serves society as a whole.

Those at the other end of the spectrum feel that the government should strengthen and enforce laws to protect

intellectual property



The key issue here is about producer rights and user rights; a balance between public and private interests.


Copyright Law

Copyright means that you control the rights to a bundle of rights, including rights to:(1) to make copies the copyrighted work (2) to make modifications based on the original work (called derivative works) (3) distribute copies of recordings of the work to the public by sale, rental, or leasing (distribution rights)


Copyright Law

(4) present literary, musical, and audiovisual works to the public (publishing rights)(5) present digital audio transmissions of certain sound recordings (transmission rights)You can unbundle, split, sell, or license these rights in a variety of ways. EXAMPLES:you can sell rights for a certain period of time (a five-year license)sell rights to a territory or in a language (sales in France, sales in the French language) sell rights to a medium (distribute on cable TV or sell on videotape)


Copyright Symbols: © ℗

The copyright symbol, designated by ©, is the symbol used in copyright notices for works OTHER than sound recordings. In the United States, the copyright notice consists of: the © symbol, or the word "Copyright" or abbreviation "Copr.”;the year of first publication of the copyrighted work; andan identification of the owner of the copyright.EX: © 2016 Shadow Illusions


Copyright Symbols: © ℗

The sound recording copyright symbol, ℗ , is used to designate copyright for sound recordings. EX: ℗ 2016 Elsibu Music Productions


Copyrights: Terms

As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978, copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. For an anonymous work, a pseudonymous work, or a work made for hire, the copyright endures for a term of 95 years from the year of its first publication or a term of 120 years from the year of its creation, whichever expires first.


Intellectual Property Ownership

When using copy written works that belong to someone else, first, you must have their permission, second, you must give them credit for the work.Copyright infringement is the use of works protected by copyright law without the owner’s permission.


Critical Thinking: Discussion Think Pair Share



protection lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years, what do you think happens to the

intellectual property


Why would asking someone’s permission to use their

intellectual property

and giving credit to the owner be important?


Copyrights: Fair Use Law

Fair Use Law - an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission.Uses That Are Generally Fair UsesCriticism and commentQuoting from a work in a review or essay.News reportingResearch and scholarshipQuoting a short passage in a scholarly, scientific, or technical work for illustration or clarificationNonprofit or educational usesParodyDrawing elements from a work for the purpose of imitating it in a comic way.


Copyrights: Fair Use Law

There are four factors courts weigh in determining whether an unauthorized use of copyright material is permitted under fair use:(1) the purpose and character of use are you creating something new or just copying the work? (2) the nature of the copyrighted work


Copyrights: Fair Use Law

Four Court Factors continued ~(3) the amount and importance of the work used despite common myths there is no 8-bar rule for sampling music, no 30-second rule for using video clips, and no one-paragraph rule for using text(4) the effect of the use on the (potential) market for or value of the work, considered as if the use was widespread.
