Copyright is understood to protect the economic and moral rights of creators of literary, music and other works. The copyright law gives creators exclusive rights to authorise different uses of their works.
The law however attempts to provide a balance between the private rights of creators and the public interest in a work. Knowledge is a public good and so the public interest in any work must be protected.
