Digital Millennium Copyright Act "The 1998 enactment of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) represents the most comprehensive reform of United States copyright law in a generation. The DMCA seeks to update U.S. copyright law for the digital age in preparation for ratification of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaties." Fair Use of Copyrighted Works: A Crucial Element in Educating America "Copyright law begins with the premise that the copyright owner has exclusive rights to many uses of a protected work, notably rights to reproduce, distribute, make derivative works, and publicly display or perform the work. But the Copyright Act also sets forth several important exceptions to those rights. Individual statutes make specific allowance for such concerns as distance learning, backup copies of software, and some reproductions made by libraries. The best known and most important exception to the owners' rights is fair use." Computer Ethics "With the freedom of the Internet has come a host of new ethical issues. This site is devoted to providing a basic understanding of computer ethics to the Internet users of tomorrow, with the hope that they will make informed and moral decisions throughout their careers."

It assumes you know at least what copyright is -- basically the legal exclusive right of the author of a creative work to control the copying of that work." The Copyright Website "This site endeavors to provide real world, practical and relevant copyright information of interest to infonauts, netsurfers, webspinners, content providers, musicians, appropriationists, activists, infringers, outlaws, and law abiding citizens.

As spice is to Dune, information is to the Web; the spice must flow." Crash Course in Copyright Copyright The legal protection against copying given to original works, which may be in printed or photographically or electronically stored words, music, visual arts, and performing arts. The purpose of copyright is not just to protect the rights, but to establish the rules under which copies or portions may be made to make a work more widely available. Copyright extends to electronic representations of these forms, too, although the laws governing new electronic copies in such forms as search engine indexes and browser caches needs better definition. Copyright exists on all original works from the moment they are published, whether formally registered or not and whether or not copyright markings appear on the works. Copyrights probably apply to public postings in e-mail, message bases, and newsgroups, but the law is not well tested in these areas. Copyrights are observed by most countries in the world. ( from the Glossary of Internet Terms ) Computer Copyright Laws by Louis Kroeck There are many copyright laws affecting modern computing.

There are a large variety of copyright laws and similar regulations dealing with modern computing technology. Examples include the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), laws regarding when you can make a backup of computer software, and common-law court decisions interpreting the application of copyright law principles to the use and manipulation of computer software. Copyright protection does not extend to most forms of computer hardware as computer hardware does not contain the expressive elements necessary for copyright protection.

Protect against infringement by registering a copyright. Get Started Now Origins of Software Copyrights

When computer software was first introduced it was not clear if copyright protection was applicable. The U.S. Copyright Office determined that a computer program was similar to a how-to guide and granted copyright protection to computer software provided that the software met certain requirements. The Copyright Office required that computer software express elements sufficient to display a work of original authorship, be intelligible to humans, and be published with the copyright notice that was required at the time. Copyright notice is no longer required by U.S. States Copyright Office, and since the first computer programs were copyrighted there have been many expansions in copyright law regarding computer software.

Scope of Protection

A copyright cannot protect every aspect of computer software as many aspects are inherently functional, as opposed to expressive, and based on algorithms, ideas, methods, concepts or logical systems. Some of these aspects of computer software may be eligible for patent protection rather than copyright protection. The expressive elements of ideas and concepts may be protected under copyright law but the underlying ideas and concepts themselves are not independently worthy of registration. Copyright protection will extend to many other elements of computer software including the screen display projected by the computer software, the look and feel of the software, the computer code, and any other aspects of the software containing a minimal degree of originality.

Making Copies

Copyright law prohibits the unauthorized copying, distribution or dissemination of copyrighted works. These restrictions create a unique circumstance for computer software because of the ease with which computer software can be copied and distributed to third parties. Under Section 117 of the United States Copyright Act, individuals who hold a valid copy of computer software are entitled to make one copy for the limited purpose of archiving or backing up their computer software. Copyright law does not permit software users to distribute copies of protected computer software, and if the original software is sold or transferred, any backup copies must be destroyed.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

The DMCA is one of the major modern copyright laws governing the use of copyrighted material over the Internet. The "safe harbor" provisions of the DMCA protect Internet service providers and website hosts from liability associated with copyrighted material that may be posted on their website by third parties. The DMCA allows a party who believes that his copyright has been infringed to send a notice of infringement demanding that the website host remove the content. As long as website hosts comply with such demands they are generally protected from claims of vicarious copyright infringement. In addition to safe harbor provisions, the DMCA contains provisions prohibiting circumvention of hardware and software access controls and technical protection measures.
