Copyrights protect the “works” of authors. Copyrights protect the particular expression of an idea, in virtually any form. Copyrighted material may appear in text form, or as graphics, fine art, music, the performance arts, or in any other original form. Copyrights currently last for the life of the author, and for an additional 70 years after the author’s death.
