    I really highly recommend this site to everyone: it's clear, readable, has great examples, and if you can take the time to read it, you'll really have a solid understanding of both copyright and fair use:

    http://fairuse.stanford.edu/Copyright_a … index.html

    It's put out by Stanford University Law School, so it's been written by people who know law really well, but it's designed for students so the rest of us can actually understand what they're talking about.

    It's where I really learned copyright, and if I ever have a question, I go back there to look it up.

    http://www.copyright.gov/ Most accurate information you will probably find.

    It is really difficult to find information about copyright at one place because there are different rules related to copyright for different fields. Like its different for music, different for published content, different for online content etc. so it will be better if you specify the field. I am good in copyright matters so I may be able to help you.

    I researched this topic for a hub I wrote called "What is Intellectual Property" that has some excellent books on the topic referenced/linked. It does depend on what your needs are, though.

    Otherwise, ipo.gov is the authority more or less.

    Raja is correct about different copyright for different materials...it is permissable to use limited portions of someone's work, certain length of a song or written work...it can get confusing.  A good site to check is http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-fairuse.html   Since it is the government's site one would hope its up to date.  Hope this helps.

    go to copyright.gov.
    It is the official government site for applying for copyright protection.
    It is actually an easy site to use and you can apply online.
    The base cost for copyright application is only $35. I have used it several times and have never had any problems.

    In the US, the best, and really ONLY, place to go is to the source of knowledge itself: http://www.copyright.gov/.

    Any other work will be less accurate than this legal body who makes the rules in the first place, and like everyone they revise their work based on new information and the needs of the public.

    Don't worry, they have plenty of things for you to read and download, and FINALLY (after years of begging by those of us who write electronically) they even have a section on electronic copyrights ("eCO").

    While I'm here on the site, I'll brush up on things myself...

    Great question to ask, especially since copyrights affect all of us in one way or another. Thank you!
