Copyright touches almost every aspect of our daily lives, whether you realise it or not. When you watch television, listen to the radio, or stream films, box sets or music online, copyright interests are at play. Copyright exists in newspapers and magazines, graphic novels, comics and books. The websites and blogs that you read are copyright-protected, although the very act of reading them involves making copies of those works (on your screen and in the cache of your computer). The photos you take on your phone, to share with friends or to post online, are almost certainly copyright works. If you tweet, those tweets might also be protected. When you agree to the terms and conditions of social networking platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Tumblr you are authorising those companies to make use of any of your copyright work that you post on that service, without having to ask your permission or make any payment. And these terms and conditions are often quite extensive: for example, you might be authorising these companies to adapt or modify your work in some way, to perform it in public, or to license other companies to make use of your work as they see fit. If you think carefully about what you do during the course of a normal day, you’ll realise that copyright is everywhere. But copyright can also be complicated, confusing and frustrating.
