IMPORTANCE OF COPYRIGHTING

IMPORTANCE OF COPYRIGHTING

Copyrighting is the act of giving exclusive rights to the creator of original work usually for a limited time and gives him the right to be credited for it.  Copyright itself is an automatic right that occurs at the point the work is in a tangible manner i.e. when written down or recorded .When work is copyrighted it should be registered so that it stands up during a dispute This makes it possible for architects, composers, playwrights and artist to register  their work under the copyright law. Copyrighting mainly involves writing the title (copyright) year of publication and the author’s name as shown below:
Copyright (c) 2011 Andrew Johnson

There are various reasons why one should acquire copyrights:

CREDITABILITY
Embedding one’s name and contacts information into ones work i.e. print ,photos and music ensures that no one takes credit for your work except you and can enable you to add your contact information such as your personal  web address which will enable you to promote your business.
PREVENTING PLAGERISM
Work that is copyrighted and registered cannot be copied word for word (plagiarism) as this will entail breaking the copyrighting law as the copyrights belong to the original writer, if one goes against this it gives the original writer the right to sue him for plagiarism .One can only use the copyrighted work under permission from the owner of the copyrights   or alter the sequence of words. Registering your work would make it easier for an infringer to track you down and ask for license to be able to use it.
PREVENTS PIRACY AND INCREASE GAINS
C copyrights law mostly protects the music and movie industry which mostly suffer  from piracy if ones work is not copyrighted  others will directly sell the piece of work and  absorb all the profits while the original owner languishes in poverty.  Copyrights belong to the original owner and any one intending to use this piece of work should ask for license.  This ultimately prevents others from fully gaining on ones time ,sweat, tear ,money, blood and every single emotion they incurred while developing the original work.
LEGAL  ACTION
Copyright protection of one’s work begins  when  one’s work  is registered and another party uses without  permission.  This ensures you can file a case against them.
