What is the Intellectual Property (Copyright)?
The copyright of a literary, artistic or scientific work corresponds to the author by the mere act of creating it. He is considered author to the individual creative work. If the work is disclosed anonymously or under a pseudonym or sign, the exercise of the rights of intellectual property on it corresponds to the natural or legal person who published with the consent of the author, provided that this does not reveal your identity.
Intellectual property laws protect two different types of rights: copyrights, and related rights. The first set the protection to creative people of works of the intellect; the so-called "rights neighboring or related", are, fundamentally, the rights of artists performers, producers of phonograms, producers of audiovisual recordings, broadcasting organizations, those relating to the protection of mere photographs and the protection of certain editorial productions, and, finally, the sui generis right on database.
From the legal point of view can be distinguished two kinds of rights inherent to copyright:
- Moral rights: the right to the authorship of the work, the right to the integrity and the right to decide the way in which the work will be. These rights are inalienable and transferable.
- Economic rights: are the exploitation rights of the work, i.e. the rights of reproduction, distribution, public communication, making available and transformation. These rights can be transmitted.
