What Is Copyright Infringement?

traverselegal - December 16, 2011 - Copyright Law, What Is Copyright Infringement

Copyright infringement is the copying of the creative works of authorship of another that results in the violation of the rights secured to that author under federal law. These rights, guaranteed by § 106 of the act, consist of the right to reproduce, to prepare derivative works, to distribute copies, to perform publicly, to display publicly, or to perform via digital audio transmission the copyrighted work. Copyright protection arises once the work is “fixed in a tangible medium of expression,” and copyright registration provides additional benefits, such as the ability to file a lawsuit in federal court and increased damages awards.
