We often hear about copyright, but the underlying concept of copyright may not always be clear: what exactly is it about? Does it have a specific duration? And what does it aim to protect?
In order to adequately answer these questions, we will obviously have to start with the definitions.
The term “copyright” is used to identify a legal institution whose purpose is to provide protection to authors and their work by granting the original author various property and moral rights. Among these, the most common ones are the recognition of authorship of the work and the right to receive compensation whenever the work in question is used or adopted by third parties.
