COPYRIGHTS
Copyright gives the author of an original work exclusive right for a certain time period in relation to that work, including its publication, distribution and adaptation, after which the work is said to enter the public domain. Copyright may apply to a wide range of creative, intellectual, scientific , artistic forms or works. It can include poems, theses, plays, other literary works, movies, dances, musical compositions, audio recordings, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, software, radio and television broadcasts.

Copyright does not cover ideas and information themselves, only the form or manner in which they are expressed.
For example, the copyright to a Mickey Mouse cartoon restricts others from making copies of the cartoon or creating derivative works based on Disney's particular mouse, but it does not prohibit the creation of other works about mice in general, so long as they are not copies or adaptations of Disney's mouse.
