Copyright is a set of rights relating to the creators of literary and artistic works as indicated in Article 2 of the Bern Convention. Copyright essentially comprises two rights, namely: Economic Rights and Moral Rights.
The protection of copyright is independent of formal obligations. To protect the interests of the author, there is an internationally recognized principle (the so-called "absence of formality") according to which the rights of authors exist from the moment the work is created (for example a photograph, a story, a poem, etc.). The right therefore arises at the very moment in which the idea arises from the author.
In order to oppose it to third parties, however, it is necessary to prove the certain date and this can be obtained either by depositing it as an unpublished work or through online registers.
The duration and effectiveness of the protection depends on the originality of the artistic work.
