U.S. copyright law grants copyright holders the following exclusive rights: In the broadest sense, fair dealing is any copy of copyrighted material made for a limited and “transformative” purpose, such as commenting, criticizing, or parodying a copyrighted work. Such uses may be made without the permission of the copyright owner. In other words, fair dealing is a defense against a claim of copyright infringement. If your use is considered fair dealing, it will not be considered a violation. Copyright limitations and exceptions are provisions of local copyright law or the Berne Convention that allow the use of copyrighted works without a license from the copyright owner. The term may also refer to rights granted to persons or entities producing subject matter that, although not considered works under the copyright systems of some countries, contain sufficient creativity or technical and organizational expertise to justify recognition by a right similar to copyright. Computer programs and other types of software are considered literary works for copyright purposes. Therefore, they benefit from automatic protection without the need for registration. In some countries, the process of voluntary registration of software may differ from that of other types of works. Permission is also required if your SME publishes or makes available copyrighted works, sound recordings, programs or performances via your website. Alternatively, if the unauthorized copying constitutes the criminal offence of copyright piracy, a complaint may be filed with the police, prosecutor`s office or other competent authority in accordance with applicable local law. Indeed, copyright protection is generally automatic and does not depend on registration.
However, in some countries, you may encounter a voluntary copyright registry/custodian, and registering your work can be a wise choice as it would help you considerably in the event of a legal dispute, for example over the ownership of the work. Patents and trademarks are other types of intellectual property that may cover works and are considered separately from copyright eligibility. For example, patents granted by the government protect certain inventions or discoveries, designs of manufactured objects and plant varieties. Trademark law, on the other hand, protects words, names, symbols or devices used in trade in goods or services to indicate the origin of goods and distinguish them from the goods or services of others. For more information on these other types of intellectual property, see U.S. Patent and Trademark Information. Before taking any action, you should carefully consider whether the reproduction actually constitutes an infringement of your copyright (see the question on limitations and exceptions to copyright). If you believe that your right has been violated, you should try to identify the person responsible. If it is impossible or inappropriate to resolve the problem informally, you can appeal to a court or other authority.
The app itself is really good and very useful and I appreciate it very much, but in the last 3 days when I walked into the app and had to see an ad as usual, it would load for a very long time and never appear at the end no matter how long I waited. I even tried a lot of things to see what the problem was. My connection was fine and I tried to update, turn off or turn off my phone, log back in, delete and reinstall the app and unload it. But with all the effort I`ve put into making it work, it`s never been the case. So I decided to go to the website instead, and it worked perfectly, the ads were displayed and let me play them. So, the problem seemed to be the app itself, but the only thing that is annoying when I go to the website instead of the app is that it only gives me a limited number of ads that I can see to get answers in a day. I don`t know if I`m the only one with this problem, but I think that for the past few days it seems really worrying and difficult to me because I really like the app in general. Therefore, I would like to see and know if there is something I am doing wrong or something I need to do to make it work.
Please and thank you for your precious time. It is important to know that we are all copyright users. When we read books, watch movies, listen to music, or use video games or software, we are using copyrighted works. Copyright registration also adds value to the public as a whole. It facilitates the licensing market by allowing people to find copyright information and it informs the public that someone is claiming copyright protection. It also provides a record of this nation`s creativity.
