Scope of Copyright Protection
The Copyright Act of 1957 prevents the unauthorized use of any original literary, musical, dramatic, audio, cinematographic, and other artistic work. Both published and unpublished works can be copyrighted, and the original work’s copyright is reserved for the original creator. Copyright can also be registered for works that were published before 21 January 1958, that is before the Copyright Act came into existence.
Copyright protection of original literary, musical, dramatic, and artistic works lasts for the entire lifetime of the author and another 60 years from the year following the death of the author. For cinematograph films, sound recordings, photographs, posthumous publications, anonymous and pseudonymous publications, works of government, and works of international organizations, the 60 years is counted from the date of publication.
