The globalisation of media has developed copyright into a significant tool for the protection of creativity, knowledge and talent.
As the demand for digital content increases, copyright violations have become more common. Musicians, writers, artists, producers, architects, photographers and performers rely on copyright legislation to protect different forms of idea expressions such as artistic works, literary works, musical works, audiovisual works and databases.
