CopyrightsCopyrights are the media analogies to patents. They are conferred exclusive-use privileges granted to the originators of commercial media products or elements within products to protect the owners from having their intellectual property stolen by potential competitors. Copyrights provide the means to levy legal and financial penalties against individuals and organizations that do so. In letter, Babylon 5 fanfiction can be construed as violating Warner Brothers copyrights. In practice, it is generally ignored as long as it is not plagaristic or written for profit. See also 'Trademarks', 'Plagiarism' 'Fair Use', 'Berne Convention'.
