Q.What does copyright protect?

A.Copyright laws protect the original tangible expression of the author's idea(s) in things such as writings, paintings, photographs, sound recordings, motion pictures, music recordings, graphics, and computer programs. Copyright law protects the means by which the author describes, expresses, or illustrates the idea. Copyright does not protect the idea itself and cannot prevent others from using the idea(s) or information revealed by the work. Copyright laws also do not protect discoveries, concepts, procedures, processes, systems, methods of operation, or principles revealed in the author's work.
