Property Eligible to be Copyrighted

At the time of creation into a tangible form, your intellectual property may be automatically copyrighted. Federal copyright registration laws serve to officially announce the protection of original works and authorship from those who would unrightfully claim the property as their own. Common property that is protected under copyright registration includes, but is not limited to:

  • Poetry, short stories or novels
  • Movies
  • Songs
  • Photographs
  • Drawings
  • Computer software
  • Architecture

Usually, property created by you and subject to copyright is exclusively your own for your entire lifetime, plus 70 years. If the work is published as an anonymous person or under a pseudonym, the copyright generally extends for 95 years after publication. Copyright laws do not protect trademarks, slogans or intellectual ideas from use by others, but there may be other ways to safeguard them.
