The term copyright is coined from its own ingredients, viz. ‘the right to copy’. The concept of copyright comprises the exclusive right of the owner of the works to make copies thereof, and to exclusively exercise various other rights granted by him/her by law.

Copyright is a legal right which acknowledges the natural rights of creative individual. This renders an infringer civilly liable. He may also be held criminally liable in certain circumstances.

The objects protected by copyright are literary, musical, dramatic works, pantomime, choreographic works, pictorial, graphic, architectural and sculptural works, motion pictures and other audio visual works and sound recordings, rights of broadcasting organization and of performers, computer software, email and a host of other features.

Thus copyright means the exclusive privilege of a creator of cultural goods, for a stated period, to exercise and exploit various intangible rights (including the age old right to make copies) in respect of his tangible works. This is the reward to the creator.
