Copyright is a subset of intellectual property law. A copyright is an exclusive right, granted by law, which prevents unauthorised reproductions of a wide range of works such as books, maps, sheet music, paintings, photographs, architectural and technical drawings, and computer programs. Copyright is automatic, meaning the work is protected as soon as it is recorded, but copyright does not protect ideas, concepts, styles, techniques or information. See also Intellectual Property. .
