The first concepts of copyright were developed even at the time of classical civilizations, in Greece and Rome. Over the following centuries, these guidelines were broadened and laws protecting the works were created.
The author is the person responsible for creating an artistic or scientific work. Copyright guarantees to any person the ownership of its creation and commercial exploitation.
The registration of songs, formats, scripts, and trademarks, for example, are important for creators to commercially exploit their works. Nowadays, with the increase of channels and producers, this issue becomes fundamental to the success of a product. Piracy remains a constant concern, especially with the advancement of the digital world.
All reproduction is a copy, and copy without the authorization of the copyright holder and or copyright holder or outside the legal provisions constitutes counterfeiting, a civil and criminal wrongful act.
