Copyright is an intellectual property right conferred upon the owner for his/her original works. A copyright can be books, movie scripts, songs, recordings or anything for that matter that is original in nature. Nobody else can use the original works of the owner without his/her consent in writing.

The owner of the copyright can sue if he/she finds that their work has been violated. This right was initiated by the government under The Copyright Act of 1957 in order to safeguard the interest of the curators. The protection given by the copyright creates an atmosphere conducive to creativity, which leads them to create more such original works and motivates others too.
