So what exactly is protected under copyright? Who owns a copyright? How does one get a copyright?
You don’t have to have a doctorate in law studies to understand how copyright works, you just need to pay attention!
The first thing you need to know is that everything that you create is copyright protected! Original works are protected the instant you finish them.
if you take a selfie of yourself in front of the Eiffel Tower, protected!
If you manipulate a photo you took in photoshop, protected!
