Copyright is a set of exclusive laws that regulate the utilization of the work of creators like artists and authors. Copyright prohibits such things like copying, changing, displaying and distributing creative, literary, and music among other types of work. In this case, the creator of a work retains the copyright unless stated otherwise. Importantly, for a copyright to be applied ideas put to work must be original where the physical use of the idea is protected by the copyright. Examples of physical ideas are written novels or music that is covered under the copyright law. This paper will be guided by a thesis statement stated as; the main aim of copyright is to ensure that society is rich with creative works. On this basis, the copyright laws ensure that society becomes innovative where different people come up with different ideas which bring development in society (Coombe, 1998).
