"Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States to
the authors of “original works of authorship,” including “pictorial, graphic,
and sculptural works.” The owner of copyright in a work has the exclusive right
to make copies, to prepare derivative works, to sell or distribute copies, and
to display the work publicly. Anyone else wishing to use the work in these ways
must have the permission of the author or someone who has derived rights
through the author."-http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ40.pdf
