"Copyright is a type of intellectual property that protects original works of authorship as soon as an author fixes the work in a tangible form of expression. In copyright law, there are a lot of different types of works, including paintings, photographs, illustrations, musical compositions, sound recordings, computer programs, books, poems, blog posts, movies, architectural works, plays, and so much more!"

As a creator and a copyright owner, some of the rights you have at the time of authoring your creations are:

Right to Reproduce

It's the most fundamental right of a copyright owner. The most basic rights are:

  • Right to prevent other people from making copies of your work

  • Sole and exclusive right, to reproduce your own work in any medium you choose

  • Right to prevent other people from reproducing the work in those same medium

Right to Create Derivative Works

Any adaptations, extensions, modifications of an original work

A lot of generative art projects can fall into this category. Know your rights and licenses as a creator and also a collector of these works.

  • The copyright law gives the original owner of the original copyright (or in some cases, the developer or owner of the software producing the generative art):

    • the sole and exclusive right to create these derivative works

    • to make these adaptations, extensions beyond the original work

These rights are fundamental at the time of creation and before any transaction is made.

Rights may be conferred to other people or organizations, depending on licensing and/or formal contract executed between two or more parties.

If you believe someone has copy-minted and violated Intellectual Property, please report the account to the copy-mint-report Channel in Discord or in any of our official pages.
