Who owns the Copyright in a Work?

By Matt Fendt and Raphaelle Feldner Busztin

Once work is put into a fixed form the copyright belongs to the author/artist/creator of the work. The work only belongs to the author, unless the author allows somebody else to use it in a written agreement. When multiple people create work, they are called joint authors. They both own the work, unless they decide otherwise. :-)
