Who must register and protect by Copyright?
Copyright is the law that applies to the creation of any mind in the literary, artistic works, designs, and creative concepts.
How soon after I deposit my creation does it enjoy Copyright protection?
The consideration and protection on the document transmitted in secure mode, your copyright deposit, are instantaneous.
Indeed, the Act states that copyright, provided the original work or design, protection is afforded at creation. Thus, your creation, implementation, design, web site, written or published on the Web, your music, your project, are already holders of copyright. It is enough to prove priority with a copyright deposit. Deposit gives a certain date (priority of copyright) for your deposit creation. Your deposit is uncontestable proof of copyright. The deposit is your official witness of your right to your creation or design.
How long does copyright protection last?
The protection by filing copyright is valid for life + 70 years after the death of the author. Copyright deposits are archived with officers, who are obliged by decree of State to retain all documents lodged with them in an integrated way, uncontestable (unalterable content of material submitted) and retrievable at any time by the holder of intellectual property rights relating to the copyright of the applicant.
