What is copyrighting ?

How does it affect your business ?

It’s important to understand that you can’t use information in your own publications or on your web site that has already been copyrighted by someone else unless you get permission from the owner to use it. Copyrights protect individuals’ intellectual property from just that kind of misuse. Before you photocopy any part of a work, book, publication or web site, make sure you are aware of the work’s copyright status and that you do not plan to use the information in any work you plan to make public or copyright yourself.
