Copyrights protect original creative ideas and are distinct from other types of intellectual property laws such as patents or trademarks. When an author writes a book, a musician creates a song, or an artist produces a painting, he can protect the presentation of his new idea through a copyright. This provides the owner with the exclusive right to control that particular creative material, unless an exception to the copyright rules exists. "Fair use" rules, for example, permit portions of the material to be reprinted for purposes of education, criticism, satire or commentaries on the original piece.

Do I Need a Copyright Lawyer?
The purpose of the DMCA was to resolve some of the unique copyright issues that have arisen with digital intellectual property. Under the DMCA, you may file a copyright complaint with a site that incorporates user-generated content, such as YouTube, if it posts content that infringes on your copyright. For example, if your song appears in a YouTube video without your consent, you can request for the offending video to be removed. The site would be obligated to delete the content if copyright infringement is established. If your site includes any user-generated intellectual property, you may want to include a lawyer-drafted DMCA notice on your site.
