Media Copyright

Table of Contents


Copyright is a form of legal protection that provides authors, of original creative works, with limited control over the reproduction and distribution of their work. 

These rights are subject to exceptions and limitations, such as "fair use," which allows limited uses of works without the permission of the copyright holder.
