What is a copyright violation?

To simplify the matter, copyright infringement occurs when you do certain things with a creative work that is produced by someone other than yourself without first obtaining the proper authorization.

Some examples of copyright violations:

  • Placing a photo or a creative work online without proper authorization.
  • Adapting a creative work from one medium to another, like a book into a film or photograph in paint.
  • Changing or editing a creative work without proper authorization.

How can I avoid infringe on the copyright of somebody?

The best way to avoid infringing on the rights of another creative person is to use your skills, your talent and imagination to create your own work.

It is also essential to ensure that all parts of your work, both visual and audio, are your own original creations. If you used materials that are held by other persons or companies, it is important to ensure that you have obtained the appropriate permission or right to use it before putting your work online.

What types of things are under copyright?

The easy answer to this question is that any creative work that you might find should be considered copyright by default.
An artistic Work is not necessarily required to have a copyright statement printed on or close to be considered copyrighted. Do not assume that work is not protected if you do not see a written notice. Also, do not confuse the fact that a work is publicly available with the idea that it is public domain or copyright free. Being easily found on the internet does not affect the status of a copyrighted work.

Some warnings

  • No matter how you got the material, it is still considered protected and you still need permission.
  • Regardless of whether you have credited the true owner, it is still considered protected and you still need permission.
  • No matter if you did not intend to sell or make a profit, it is still considered copyrighted and you still need permission.
  • No matter if you can find other people using things without permission, it is still considered copyrighted and you still need permission.
  • No matter if you only change the work a little or make some modifications, if the work is recognizable, it is still considered copyrighted and you still need permission.
