This is the legal recognition that a creative work belongs to you if you are the 'copyright' owner.

This means that anyone wishing to make use of the work for non-personal use will need to get your agreement.

'Creative works' includes almost anything a person can produce for other people e.g.

> literature
> music
> film
> software code

You have automatic copyright for any works that you create, unlike a trademark which you have to apply for.
