Definition of Copyright
Copyright is an area of intellectual property rights, which regulates the protection of the authors of authorial works, i.e. any individual, original creation originating from creative intellectual activity in the fields of literature, science and art - independently of the genre in which the given creation is embodied, and the holders of the so called rights related to copyright. The basic rules relating to copyright are contained in the Copyright Act (No. LXXVI of 1999) but several other regulations [Decree No. 156/1999 (XI. 3.) of the Government on the Organisation and Operation of the Council of Copyright Experts; Decree No. 158/2000. (IX. 13.) of the Government on the Determination of the Range of Devices used for the Purposes of Reprography; Decree No. 16/1999. (XI. 18.) NKÖM of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage on the rules of the registration of organisations concerned with the collective administration of authors' rights and neighbouring rights] also provide for matters concerning copyright.
