Copyright – A Way to Get Paid
Last updated: 01/11/2016
Copyright is one of the main types of intellectual property – others include designs, patents and trademarks.
Intellectual property allows a person to own his or her creation in the same way as something physical can be owned. Copyright gives a right to prevent others from copy or reproduce someone's work.
The legal provisions are contained in the Act on Copyright in Literary and Artistic Works – the Swedish Copyright Act – (Swedish Code of Statutes, SFS 1960:729 with a number of subsequent amendments).
