Copyright is a very tricky concept.
While some people love it, some don’t.
If you’re not a fan, you might want to rethink your choice.
What are the main arguments?
A copyright is a copyright, or the right to use, reproduce, distribute and sell copies of a work.
The main thing to understand is that copyright is not a licence to steal or exploit someone else’s work.
You do not own the rights to your own work.
If you were to steal a copy of the BBC’s popular show, Sherlock, it would not be a copyright violation to use it on a pirate site.
This is because it is copyrighted work.
There are plenty of other examples of copyrighted works being used by the public.
For example, a film is being made of the Beatles song “Yesterday”.
This is a work of art, and its fair use doctrine protects it.
However, the BBC has a right to make it, and the rights owner must pay for the rights.
It also has to give the rights holder a chance to use the work.
This can be a long process that can take years.
For this reason, the owner must have a licence or licence to use that work.
But if the rights owners decide to make use of your work, they must pay the rights holders for the right.
You don’t own the copyright in the first place.
The BBC and the right holders have a right under the copyright laws to use and distribute the work without asking permission.
This does not mean you own the work, but it does mean that the rights are yours and you have the right not to use them.
Copying works is legal.
However you use it, if you steal or copy someone else, you are committing a copyright infringement.
This makes copying and distributing copyrighted works illegal.
In Australia, copying works that have been made and sold are copyright infringement and you will be prosecuted.
It is important to understand that it is not necessarily plagiarism.
It depends on the purpose and intent of the work that you copy.
If the intent is to copy, then copying is considered plagiarism and not copyright infringement in Australia.
If your intent is not to copy and redistribute, then you may be protected by copyright laws.
What about fair use?
Fair use is the use of a copyrighted work for a purpose other than the one for which it was originally created.
The definition of fair use varies.
Fair use is defined by the Australian Copyright Act 1996 as: a use which is justified on the ground that it will be of some benefit to the public by reason of its being done; and a use that is made with the consent of the copyright owner.
If a work is used in a way that is likely to cause confusion, or to have the effect of making it difficult or impossible to understand, it is likely that the use has not been properly attributed to the author or copyright owner, or that it has been used without the author’s permission.
If an author’s name, address or phone number are used in connection with a work, this is a fair use.
However a copyright owner will usually have the final say over whether the use is fair use under Australian law.
This may mean that you need to find out if you can get a fair licence from your rights holder to use a work that they own.
There is also a fair warning notice if you are accused of using a work in a copyright-infringing way.
This means that you will have to tell the copyright holder where you obtained the work from and how it is used.
Fair warning notices can also give the copyright holders permission to use your work in some cases.
There is a statutory duty to give fair warning notices, which is the right for copyright holders to give you a chance.
However the notice may not be sufficient.
You will be able to seek injunctions if the copyright owners’ use of the copyrighted work is deemed unlawful.
This has a significant impact on the likelihood of a successful injunction.
If not, you may need to seek a review of the matter by the courts.
Do you need a licence?
There are some circumstances where you will need a copyright licence to make and distribute a work or a service.
You must give your licence to your rights holders, such as your owner or the broadcaster.
This includes works that are available for free, for a limited time or for a fixed term.
It does not include the commercial use of those works.
However if you want to distribute a service, you must also give your permission to the rights-holders.
Copyright holders are not allowed to make money from the sale of works or services.
It’s illegal for copyright owners to make profits from the use or distribution of works.
So, if a service is available for sale, and you want it to be available to the general public, you need permission from the copyright rights holder.
This permission can be granted
