Copyright Basics
What Is Copyright?
A form of protection provided by the laws of the United States to the authors who originally created their material. This includes literature, drama, art, and many other works. Protection is available to those works that have been published as well as those unpublished. Copyright gives you EXCLUSIVE permission to reproduce, distribute, perform in public, and display your material. It is against the law for anyone to violate any of the rights enlisted within the copyright law against the original owner of the copyright.

What Is Not Protected By Copyright?
These include the categories of material that cannot be federally copyrighted (According the United States Copyright Office/ Library of Congress):

Works that have not been fixed in a tangible form of expression (for example, choreographic works that have not been notated or recorded, or improvisational speeches or performances that have not been written or recorded)

Titles, names, short phrases, and slogans; familiar symbols or designs; mere variations of typographic ornamentation, lettering, or coloring; mere listings of ingredients or contents.

Ideas, procedures, methods, systems, processes, concepts, principles, discoveries, or devices, as distinguished from a description, explanation, or illustration.

Works consisting entirely of information that is common property and containing no original authorship (for example: standard calendars, height and weight charts, tape measures and rulers, and lists or tables taken from public documents or other common sources)
