An intellectual property right. Copyright protects the form of expression of an idea (and not the idea itself) and lasts for a fixed period (normally the life of the author plus 70 years from the end of the calendar year of the author’s death). Copyright laws are designed to prevent copying but do not extend to similar or identical works which may already exist, provided they have not been copied.
