Authors, poets, artists, and film creators, among others, have their rights to their original works protected by copyright law. A work must be “fixed in a physical medium of expression” to qualify for copyright protection. This implies that the work must exist in some physical form for at least some time, regardless of how fleeting. Any kind of expression can be considered a physical medium.
Furthermore, the work must be original – that is, it must have been made by the author on his or her own. It makes no difference if an author’s work is identical to others’ works or if it is deemed to be deficient in quality, inventiveness, or artistic appeal. Copyright protects the author’s work as long as he or she does not copy from another source. https://www.brealant.com/en/copyright-registration/
