Is my work protected by copyright?
Originally the Copyright Act provided protection only to authors of written work. The Act has grown with technology and now covers architectural design, graphic arts, photography, motion pictures, software, sound recordings, and writings. Nearly all works created after January 1, 1978, are afforded protection under the Copyright Act. The Act specifically covers “works of authorship that are fixed in a tangible medium of expression. . .” Spoken words that have not been written down or recorded electronically are an example of something intangible and therefore not protected by the Copyright Act.
