Creating Copyright

What you, or anyone else, can do with a copyrighted work depends on who controls the rights in a work.

In the following sections, you will learn how copyright occurs, what it means to own a copyright and how to control the results so you can use the work as you intend. If you are new to the topic, you may find it useful to read through the sections in order.
