Copyright

Copyright is a right that subsists on an original creation and belongs to the author of the creation.

The main conditions of validity are:

  • the creation must be in a concrete shape;

  • originality: the creation must be the result of an intellectual effort and bear the author’s stamp; it must therefore not have been copied from an existing creation.

The subject of copyright can be very diverse: not only music, literature or other forms of art are covered, but also software, industrial designs, logo’s, layout of packaging, websites, etc. can enjoy copyright protection.

Overlaps with other intellectual property rights are possible, such as design rightsand trademark rights.
