Work is any manifestation of creative activity having an individual character, established in any form. Copyrights may be vested in particular in works expressed with words, art works, photography, architecture, music, cartographic or audio-visual works. The above list is not exhaustive, which means that every manifestation of creative activity that meets the above features may be considered a work and enjoy copyright protection.
Copyright protection arises without any formalities and vests in the work from the moment it has been created. The fact that the creation is made should be a subject to proving in court. We have a verified methodology for securing evidence of creation of the work, which makes easier to litigate in copyright infringement cases in court.
Copyright protection grants its holder the right to any economic exploitation of the work. It is the right of reproduction in any form and technique. It is the right to distribute the work by any means. It is a right to public display of works. It is finally the right to modify the work and the economic exploitation of the works created on its basis.
Copyrights are supranational. Based on international conventions copyright in a work created by a citizen of a country, are protected in other countries in accordance with local copyright laws.
