Copyright is a type of property right on a person’s creative skill and labor. Copyright protects the form or way an idea or information is expressed, not the idea or information itself. Copyright is not a tangible thing. It is made up of a bundle of exclusive economic rights to do certain acts with an original work or other copyright subject matter.
These rights include the right to copy, publish, communicate (for example, broadcast, make available online) and publicly perform the copyright material.
Copyright creators also have a number of non- economic rights. These are known as moral rights. These are the right of integrity of authorship, the right of attribution of authorship and the right against false attribution of authorship.
