This means that the work must be an original creation, not copied, and it must be somehow fixed or recorded so that a coy of the work exists. Copyright protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works including writings, computer programs, artwork, photographs, poerty, songs, movies, sculptures, architectural plans and drawings.
