Copyright refers to the set of rules and principles that regulate the moral and economic rights that the law grants to authors for the mere fact of the creation of a literary, artistic, musical, scientific or educational work, whether published or unpublished.

These rights protect both the content of the work (patrimonial right) and the personal relationship between the author and his creation (moral right). In the digital realm, copyright is particularly relevant due to the ease with which works can be copied, distributed and modified without the consent of the rights holder.
