What is IP and why is it important?

Posted November 18, 2018 10:17:29A lot of people think of copyright as a relic of a bygone era when everyone was using computers and email.

But in the digital age, copyright is more than a relic: it’s an essential part of how we make and share information.

When you buy a book or TV show, you own the rights to its story, the characters, and the storyteller.

In exchange, you have the right to distribute that information, in print or online, across the globe.

Copyright law is the law that governs this relationship.

It’s also the law you should always pay attention to, because it governs how and when you can make use of copyright.

The basics of copyrightThe basic idea of copyright is that you have rights to create something by making a specific copy of something.

The basic concept is that copyright gives you the right — not the obligation — to reproduce the work you’ve created, or to distribute it widely.

So how do you use copyright?

If you have something that is in the public domain and you want to sell it, you first have to get permission from the copyright owner, which is usually the copyright holder.

The owner of the copyright may then grant you a license that lets you reproduce the copyright work for free.

This is a good way to get some idea of the terms of copyright, and also to see if there are any restrictions on what you can do with the copyrighted work.

But there’s more to copyright law than simply giving you rights to reproduce.

When you buy books, movies, or TV shows, you also own the copyrights to the copyright owners’ descriptions of the works.

In these cases, the copies of the books, the movies, and TV shows are called works of authorship, and copyright law protects them.

In some cases, copyright owners may also own copyright to the words that describe or describe the works, which are called descriptive marks.

When a copyright owner gives you a copyright, you can use that copyright to create derivative works of the copyrighted works.

These are called derivative works because they’re meant to be used in new ways, without copying or modifying the original.

For example, if you were to make a book with a story, and you wanted to make it a movie, you could do that by copying and pasting the movie’s dialogue and the book’s illustrations into your novel.

But you couldn’t just copy and paste the storyboard, the character designs, and all the rest of the details that make up the book.

Instead, you’d need to do a complete reworking of the book, including a complete rewriting of all the characters.

That’s called a rework.

If you want your book to become a movie or TV series, you need to rework the story and the characters from scratch.

And that’s just one example of how copyright law works.

Sometimes copyright owners give you other rights, too.

You have the same rights to make copies of their books, films, and other copyrighted works, and to distribute them as well.
