Was ist Copyright Law?
Copyright law is the legal area that protects artistic and literary works. It gives the authors the right to control how their work is used, reproduced, and distributed. Copyright law grants exclusive rights to the authors, such as the right to decide who can copy, resell, and perform their work, as well as how it can be displayed and shared. It is important to note that copyright law only protects the expression of an idea, not the idea itself. Additionally, copyright protection is limited in time and applies only to certain types of works such as books, music, and movies.
