Nature of Copyright
Copyright and copyright works.
Copyright is a property right which subsists in the following descriptions of work:
(1) original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works;
(2) sound recordings, films or broadcasts; and
(3) the typographical arrangement of published editions,
and 'copyright work' means a work of any of those descriptions in which copyright subsists.
Copyright does not subsist in a work unless the statutory requirements with respect to qualification for copyright protection are met. No copyright or right in the nature of copyright subsists otherwise than by virtue of Part I of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 or some other enactment in that behalf
Copyright may subsist in works of joint authorship and in works of unknown authorship
Ideas as such are not the subject matter of copyright, but only the form in which ideas are expressed. In many cases it is difficult to ascertain where the boundary lies and a more detailed collection of ideas or a pattern of incidents or a compilation of information may amount to a substantial part of a work such that copying it may amount to infringement.
The correct identification of the particular category of copyright work into which an author's work fitted is of importance both as to duration and as to the scope of the right conferred. In the case of a borderline work the proper category is that which most nearly suits the characteristics of the work in issue.
Rights subsisting in copyright works.
The owner of the copyright in a work of any description has the exclusive right to do certain acts specified as the acts restricted by the copyright in a work of that description.
In relation to certain descriptions of copyright work the following moral rights subsist in favour of the author, director or commissioner of the work, whether or not he is the owner of the copyright:
(1) the right to be identified as author or director;
(2) the right to object to derogatory treatment of work; and
(3) the right to privacy of certain photographs and films.
Copyright1 does not subsist in a work unless the qualification requirements2 are satisfied as regards:
(1) the author; or
(2) the country in which the work was first published; or
(3) in the case of a broadcast, the country from which the broadcast was made.
If the qualification requirements are once satisfied in respect of a work, copyright does not cease to subsist by reason of any subsequent event.
Qualification by reference to author.
A work qualifies for copyright1 protection if the author was at the material time a qualifying person that is:
(1) a British citizen, a British overseas territories citizen, a British national (overseas), a British overseas citizen, a British subject or a British protected person or
(2) an individual domiciled or resident in the United Kingdom or another country to which the relevant provisions extend; or
(3) a body incorporated under the law of a part of the United Kingdom or of another country to which the relevant provisions extend.
Where, or so far as, provision is made by Order in Council applying the statutory provisions to countries to which they do not otherwise extend, a work also qualifies for copyright protection if at the material time the author was a citizen or subject of, an individual domiciled or resident in, or a body incorporated under the law of, a country to which the Order in Council relates.
A work of joint authorship qualifies for copyright protection if at the material time any of the authors satisfies the above requirements.
Qualification by reference to country of first publication.
A literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, a sound recording or film6 or the typographical arrangement of a published edition, qualifies for copyright protection if it is first published in the United Kingdom or in another country to which the relevant provisions extend.
Where, or so far as, provision is made by Order in Council applying the statutory provisions to countries to which they do not otherwise extend, such a work also qualifies for copyright protection if it is first published in a country to which the Order in Council relates.
For these purposes, publication in one country is not to be regarded as other than the first publication by reason of simultaneous publication elsewhere; and for this purpose publication elsewhere within the previous 30 days is to be treated as simultaneous.
