Copyright

What is Copyright?
A Copyright is a right given to the makers of intellectual property like literary and artistic works.
The Birth of Copyright Law
During early times, intellectual properties in music and literature abound but there were no means of mass producing such works, hence copyright or control of the copies were never done. Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the moveable type enabled the copying and mass production of books and other literary works. This presented a threat to the clergy people who possess monopoly over copies of books.  Hence, the copyright law began. Printing of religious books was restricted to a few companies and permission has to be sought from owners prior to production. Subversive documents were also mass produced during that time.  This prompted governing people to pass laws attaching authors to their works. One thing lead to another until printing and exclusive rights was transferred to the authors.
