What is copyright?

Last Updated: Feb 11, 2015 01:48PM GMT
Copyright protects an author’s ownership right to their work.

It can exist in different types of works, including texts, images, photographs, art, poetry, plays, music and films. Copyright can therefore exist in resources uploaded to the TES Resources platform.

Subject to certain exceptions, copyright entitles the copyright owner to control the use and distribution of a protected work by any other persons, whether it is a whole work that is used or just a substantial part.

After a certain period of time, copyright expires and works go into the public domain. Any person can use a work in the public domain without obtaining the prior consent of the original owner.

This website discusses copyright under English law. You will need to ensure that you comply with the copyright laws of any other countries in which you upload or download resources.
