Copyright Terms

Access Copyright A Canadian business that operates to distribute royalties to those who have had their print materials copied. This not-for-profit company collects revenue from governments, libraries, businesses, etc, that have made copies of copyrighted print materials.
Copyright Is an individuals’ right to intellectual property that is considered theirs. Copyright is used in regards to non-tangible objects such as song lyrics, computer code, etc.
Intellectual Property Non-tangible creations which people can be granted exclusive rights to. Intellectual property includes, but is not limited to, musical creations, artistic works, works of literacy, slogans and symbols.
Royalty A payment made to an individual for the use of one of their assets, often the use of their intellectual property. Royalties are given based on how much the asset is used.
Trademarks Another type of intellectual property rights. Trademarks are signs, symbols or designs which differentiate the product or service from one source to another.
Public Domain When the intellectual property rights of a work expire, they are put in the public domain. Generally, works are put into the public domain 50 years after the original creator has died.
Moral Rights Rights given to the original creator of a copyrighted work. Include the Right of Paternity (right to use a pen name or remain anonymous) and Right of Association (right to prevent others from using your work for a particular association, product, etc)
Performing Rights Rights of individuals to play or display the work of others so long as they pay a performing rights society. In Canada this society is SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada). SOCAN distributes royalties to the creators.
Plagiarism When an individual presents someone elses information as their own and/or fails to properly cite the original author of the work. This can occur if someone directly copies someone’s work, paraphrases someone’s original ideas, etc.
Fair Dealing Sets of clauses which allow individuals to take part in criticism, private study, research, or news reporting in regards to works protected under copyright. They are possible defenses against claims of infringement.
Patent An intellectual property right that protects a new invention. Patents protect the process, manufacturing technique, etc, but do not protect the aesthetic appearance of the invention.
Blanket License Allows musicians, clubs, businesses, and other individuals to play music in public without having to acquire rights for each and every song. A blanket license is obtained after money is paid to an organization like SOCAN, who then distributes royalties.
