Copyright. What is it? Why is it Important?

Check out this article I’m writing on my artist tips page to explain the importance of copyright for artist. First, what is Copyright?  Copyright: the exclusive right to make copies, license, and otherwise exploit aliterary, musical, or artistic work, whether printed, audio, video, etc;  

Now in terms of copyright everyone has their own rules when it comes too copyright. Like in game development or in 3-D design software like Daz Studio you need an license from the company/owner in order to actually sell the product or character. Just like with Marvel/DC Comics you can use or draw their characters but could not sell them without consent from the company. This is very important because you never want anyone to be able too steal your hard work and claim it as theirs. And sometimes it easier too steal the work of independent artist then the more famous well known artist. So it’s something we all have too stay on top of for artist. Remember too always put a source of proof that the work is yours.
