All you’ve ever wanted to know about Copyright Protection

What is Copyright Protection? The question might seem ludicrous but who knows what the “Berne Convention” is and what particular countries did or didn’t ratify it.

It is too often taken for granted that material taken from the Internet is free and can be saved in any form or fashion.

This isn’t true.

The author of the website, although unnamed (a fellow who is obviously obsessed with remaining so since he registered his domain anonymously), is nonetheless very aware of Copyright laws and regulations and delivers a must-see lecture (please check the small copyright print at the bottom!)

What is Copyright Protection


This page covers the basic definitions regarding copyrights. It has been written using the Berne Union for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Property (Berne Convention) as the main bibliographical source (other sources are credited at foot of this page) and does not refer to the laws of any country in particular.

Therefore, comparing this document to the particular laws of your country may arise in discrepancies. Copyright laws vary from country to country but as a rule, do not contravene or provide less copyright protection than the Berne Convention, provided the country in question is a member thereof.
