A copyright is an exclusive right granted by law (internationally) for a limited period to an author, designer, etc. for his/her original work. Unlike other forms of intellectual property, copyright does not need to be registered, except for cinematograph films. The application of this general principle varies from country to country.

Related to but not the same as performing rights.
