International Law & Validity

Digital Media RightsA vital aspect in generating of our copyright certificates is the universal law of the services and products we provide.

164 countries are those with whom we work and where our customers are, all signatories of the Bern Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, whose last amendment dates September 1979. The Berne Convention is funded by the World Intellectual Property Organization and is registered with the Secretariat of the United Nations.

The Bern Convention is based on three basic principles:

  • Literary and artistic works by authors from the countries of the Union, or first published in one of these countries will be able to receive in each of the other contracting states the same protection as those granted to the works of their own citizens.
  • This protection must not be conditional upon any formality.
  • This protection is independent of the existence of a corresponding protection in the country of origin of the work. However, if a Contracting State provides a longer term than the minimum prescribed by the convention, and the work ceases to be protected in the country of origin, protection may be denied once protection in the country of origin has ceased.

In this environment of compliance with the 38 articles of the Convention, all signatory states agree that:

  • The protection of copyright is spread equally in all signatory states regardless of their country of residence or the nationality of the author.
  • The copyright of a literary, artistic or scientific work corresponds to the author by the mere fact of its creation.
  • The obligation to register the work in the official records of intellectual property so that all rights are granted to the author is eliminated.
  • The protection granted by the Convention shall be the life of the author plus fifty years after his death.
  • The author shall be presumed, unless proven otherwise, as who is identified as such in the work, by name, signature or identification mark.

In this way, in the case that the author detects plagiarism or unauthorized use of his work by a third party and decides to exercise his rights, morals or property, he does not need to demonstrate that it is registered. He needs to demonstrate his authorship prior to the creation of the plagiarized work.

We cannot forget to mention the Creative Commons work-licensing model, through which the author voluntarily and publically renounces a part of his rights, for the purpose of the dissemination of the work. In the same way, our system registers and certifies works with All Rights Reserved or Creative Commons. A Creative Commons work is still always protected by Intellectual Property rights, provided that, for example, the author never renounces his right to attribution.

Digital Media Rights generates certificates of authorship or copyright to all digital works regardless of their medium; web, PDF, Power Point, Word, etc. Copyright certificates are digitally signed and include a tamperproof electronic time stamp.

Esta publicación tiene como objetivo principal el mostrar de forma fácil a nuestros lectores cuales son las licencias básicas de publicación en Internet, cómo entenderlas y aún mas importante: Cómo usarlas de forma adecuada con el objetivo de proteger adecuadamente nuestras creaciones literarias, artísticas y/o científicas.

El Copyright en Internet

De forma prácticamente universal los principios básicos sobre Propiedad Intelectual y de forma concreta los Derechos de Autor o Copyright son regidos bajo el Convenio de Berna, código firmado por 164 países y diseñado para defender a los autores de obras creativas frente al plagio y el uso no autorizado de estas. Es muy importante recordar que todas las obras creativas se encuentran protegidas por omisión desde el momento de su creación. El autor no necesita hacer ningún trámite ni inscripción registral para tener el derecho a reclamar la protección de su obra. La marca © es una opción de quienes quieran hacer más explícita la protección.
