Definitions of different aspects of Intellectual Property Rights

ACCESS COPYRIGHT Organization who protects the intellectual property of creators, authors, and publishers by ensuring they are compensated when others use their works.
COPYRIGHT Legal idea that grants the creator of a work the exclusive rights to it for a length of time. Also determines who can use the works, how it is reproduced or shared, whether or not it can be used for financial gain, and other aspects.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY Legal idea that gives exclusive rights to the literary and artistic "creations of minds". Broad term that encompasses copyright, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights, etc.
ROYALTY Refers to the compensation given to the creator of a work when it is used by a licensee. Usually determined on how much revenue the product raises or the number of units sold.
TRADE-MARKS A symbol, sign, or expression that recognizes and distinguishes a particular product from others (often competitors). Used to claim exclusive rights on a product or service
PUBLIC DOMAIN Refers to the usage of a work that is available (or belongs) to the public. These works aren't subject to copyright laws, as their intellectual property rights have often either been forfeited or expired.
MORAL RIGHTS The creator's rights to have their name attributed to their work. Also gives the creator the right to prevent the work from being manipulated, distorted, or reproduced without their consent.
PERFORMING RIGHTS Rights that allow for the compensation of composers, lyricists, songwriters and music publishers when their works are publicly performed. In Canada, the organization SOCAN collects royalties on behalf of the deserving parties.
PLAGIARISM Moral offence that consists of using the original work of another and portraying it as one's own. Serious case of academic dishonesty that often have severe consequences.
FAIR DEALING Exception to exclusive property rights that allows the non-commercial copying of works for research, private study, criticism, and review.
PATENT Exclusive rights given to the creator of an invention. Given for a limited amount of time.
BLANKET LICENSE A license given by SOCAN that allows and covers the performance of all the songs in their database. A one time, single license that makes it much easier for artists to make sure they are following intellectual property rights.
