Copyright protects original works of literature, music, drama or art against copying. These include software, websites and brochures, among many other types of work. The copyright subsists in these works automatically when they are created, and does not need to be applied for in most countries. In this context, “original” simply means not copied from elsewhere, and no special merit is necessary. Copyright is infringed when someone reproduces a substantial part of the work without the author’s permission.
