Copyright deals with the rights of Intellectual Creators in their creation. Most works for example; books, music, paintings, and drawings etc exist only once they are embodied in a physical object. But some of them exist without embodiment in a physical object for example; music and poems.

Copyright protection is above all one of the means of promoting, enriching and disseminating the national cultural heritage. A country’s development depends to a very great extent on the creativity of its people, and encouragement of individual creativity and its dissemination is a sine qua non for progress (WIPO Intellectual Property Hand book, 2004).

Therefore, copyright is the art of being creative to a fixed product such as music, films, art work, poems, and so many creative works which are valuable. So copyright is some ones property just like a land tittle which needs authorization from the owner before its being used for commercial benefits.

Take note that: no one has a right to use your creative work without your authorization. By authorization we mean any person who is to use your creative work has to first get an authorization inform of a license for him or her to use you work for gain.

On that, any creativity you come up with results into commercial benefits inform of royalty payment.
