Funn right? some things are owned by people, that’s why when you create your own work you will need to learn a bit more about Copyrights & Contracts; week five, another day another lesson; let me give you the Oxford Dictionary defines copyright as, ‘The exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material.’ ouuuh, fancy.. well not really not until you have to own you’re own line of work.

There are a few special cases to this though — where a work is made by a employee (as opposed to a freelancer) as a feature of that individual’s occupation, the business as a rule possesses copyright. For individuals employed on staff who are making material for daily papers, magazines and different periodicals, the business will claim a large portion of the copyright, however the worker will typically possess copyright for a few purposes (photocopying and distribution in books).

Independent makers normally well known as Freelancers possess copyright in what they make. Someone who pays for work to be created will generally not own copyright, but will be able to use it for the purposes for which it was commissioned. Nonetheless, there are various circumstances where somebody who commissions someone else to make material for them will claim copyright under the standards set out in the Copyright Act.
