The Leopold Library Portal

What is Copyright?

copyright is a law that gives the owner of a written documentmusical composition, book, picture, or other creative work, the right to decide what other people can do with it. Copyright laws make it easier for authors to make money by selling their works. Because of copyright, a work can only be copied if the owner of the copyright gives permission.
