Copyright protection is available for certain types of original works. It allows authors, artists, and other creators of original works to create works without fear of someone else copying and profiting from their work. FindLaw's section on Copyrights provides information and resources on getting copyright protection for your own work, licensing copyrights, using someone else's copyrighted material, and much more. In this section you can also find links to forms and resources from the U.S. Copyright Office.
