"Here Is What Copyright Protects"
Copyright protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. And, though, it doesn't protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.
We suggest you look at patents and/or trademarks if your topic(s) isn't covered in the above information. You can also find whether or not your topic(s) are covered in their FAQ Webpage as well.

What Is Copyright Infringement?
In today's time. It has never been so easy to keep our home safe and protected from burglaries and our loved ones safe and secure from any harm or danger. You have the advantage of relying on security monitoring systems; paid monitoring services, and self-installed hardware for both in-house and outside protection. But what about protecting your in-house business investment?
I'm talking about protecting your creative ideas and content on a business Website or blog. Plagiarism (Wikipedia) is one of the most subtle offenses committed on creators and designers of all types. A Google search will define the term (or word) plagiarism as "the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own." It is also a word I don't find creators, Web designers, Website, or blog owners mentioning anymore.
And I 'do' wonder why? Hmm!
You can also check out the Urban Dictionary definition as well.
A Devastating Outcome of Copyright Infringement
Copyright infringement is one of the many challenges that new home business owners will experience when starting their business venture (or enterprise) on to the World Wide Web. And to NOT properly safeguard your creative ideas and content on the Web. You are leading yourself into a major crash and unnecessary frustration down the road. It is not enough to protect your personal information from hoodlums (those who engages in crime and violence). You have to also protect anything that you place or put on the Internet.
Copyright infringement erodes the credibility, reputation, and integrity of an individual and/or their business. It demolishes his or her business credibility, their work contributed, and their original ideas of creativity. Copyright violations are also serious offenses---a crime. And they are extremely painful, angering, and you feel to lash out. They are extremely emotional.
One of the most critical problems in this business or industry. It's not enough (or those with the concern) business owners who care enough to voice their concern(s). The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is one the very first places to start or ask questions about plagiarism and copyright infringement.
We can't do it alone or without enough caring small home business owners with sites online.
Invasion of Privacy
Phishing, Tracking, and Misleading Services
It's not like it isn't already bad enough that we have to deal with others taking our ideas on the World Wide Web. And you know deep down on the inside that most of them DON'T care about how you feel or what you think about them taking your ideas. But watch out!!! Because IF someone would take their "ideas" and they noticed it too.
The table would be turned around, so to speak, and you would become the perpetrator (instead of them) and they would become the victim instead of you. Keep in mind "too" these are supposed to be reputable business websites and blogs. Something else to think about too. It doesn't apply to every business site, but it does apply to the majority of them out there on the livewire.
And what about this one?
You decided to try new free software on a business website. But, what do you expect, of course, it's free? You copy and then paste your text into the software (a plagiarism checker). You noticed (already) there are tons of banners, some text on the page but NO submit button.
to see whether or not that you can copy and past when you search or try a particular service that's free. What do you expect?
