Almost universally, the basic principles on Intellectual Property and concretely, Copyright is governed under the Bern Convention, a code signed by 164 countries and designed to defend authors of creative works against plagiarism and the unauthorized use of their works. It is very important to remember that all creative works are protected by default from the moment of their creation. The author does not need to fill any paperwork or registration to have the right to claim protection for his work. The stamp © is an option for those who want to make the protection more explicit.
The rights that an author has over his work are of moral and patrimonial character.
The author has full power to maintain or yield all or part of his rights at his own discretion.
Copyright on the Internet
Erroneously, there exists a belief that everything that is published on the Internet automatically is part of the public domain and can be used for any purpose without the need to respect the original copyrights.
It must be clear for everyone, the owners of the websites as much as the visitors, that regardless of the publication medium or distribution, any literary or creative work (including texts, images and/or photos and including web design) is under the protection of Intellectual Property.
From Digital Media Rights we detected a great ignorance concerning Copyright accompanying persons that accompany the people and/or companies that daily disseminate and communicate information across millions of blogs and websites both corporate and personal.

The policies of Intellectual Property Protection are similar in the world and although each country has its specific variations, they always take as a basis the following international treaties that seek to protect authors beyond national boundaries:
- Universal Copyright Convention
- Bern Convention
- Inter-American Copyright Convention
- Creative Commons
The Creative Commons movement emerged as a complement to Copyright, showing explicitly the desire to share works under certain conditions for the inspiration of others. It is important to remember that a work distributed under any existing Creative Commons license does not imply that it has no Copyright, simply the author explicitly waivers a part of his rights.
Without exception the Creative Commons licenses retain the right to attribution (mentioning the original author), other options permit the authorization or not of the modification of the work and the commercial use of it. Creative Commons does not prevent the re-publication of the works.
From Digital Media Rights we do not advise the use, copying or plagiarizing of everything that is published on the Internet without checking the license under which the author or owner of the website you are visiting has shared their creations.
Similarly the we remind the authors that all creative work is born with Intellectual Property rights which, unless expressly renounced, protect publications against plagiarism, commercial use, distribution rights, and explicitly, the recognition of original authorship.
