Copyright is a form of legal protection that allows the creator of literature, music, painting, photography, dance, and other forms of creative expression to control some reproduction and distribution of their work. Title 17 of the United States Code is the foundation for our copyright law and remains largely unchanged since it was passed in 1976, with the exceptions of DMCA and the TEACH Act.
