What is Copyright?
Copyright, or the right to make copies, is protection for artistic expression set into a tangible form. Artistic expression includes such things as written words (books, magazines, signs), music (both the words and lyrics, and also the performance when recorded), works of art (paintings, sketches, sculptures, photographs), motion pictures (video, etc.), and computer software (after all it is just words in a different language).
