Copyrights are the laws that give the artists, authors and other creators, protection against the use of the literary and artistic creations that are normally termed as “works”. Copyrights are normally designed to protect the creators of artistic and literary works against the reproduction of their “works” without their consent, (Daizadeh, 2007).

Copyright covers works that include plays, novels, reference materials (dictionaries, encyclopedia), newspapers, poems, advertisements, films, computer programs, drawings, choreography, photographs, paintings and maps among other work. The economic benefits that are covered by the copyright laws that were enacted under the WIPO treaties cover a limited period, usually not less than 50 years after death of the copyright holder.
