The Essayist: Arash

Nowadays, a lot of materials are created by creators such as movies, series, songs, books, etc. that most of them are protected by copyright laws which are a very important law for creators. On the other side, there are many people that infringe copyright laws that. I personally believe that more strict and precise laws should be passed to prevent people from infringing copyright laws.
First of all, I would like to mention that copyright is a form of intellectual property, applicable to certain forms of creative work. As I mentioned before, there are dozens of movies, series, etc. on the internet which are watched by many people over the world. For instance, YouTube is the most famous video- sharing website in the world which has a high level of stringency in copyright laws. YouTube analyses every video carefully in order to report the number of infringements to its owner.
Second of all, typically, the duration of a copyright spans the author’s life plus 50 to 100 years (that is, copyright typically expires 50 to 100 years after the author dies, depending on the jurisdiction). Some countries require certain copyright formalities to establishing copyright, but most recognize copyright in any completed work, without formal registration. Generally, copyright is enforced as a civil matter, though some jurisdictions do apply criminal sanctions. In addition, I think if there was a general organization which could check the eligibility of everyone in order to use any materials would be a better way to keep creators’ rights for their own.
To conclude, I believe that copyright laws should be taken seriously by people and governments also should set stringent laws to help creators. In my opinion, there must be a copyright law for ideas which are not protected by any laws.
