What is a copyright?
A copyright is made up of a variety of different rights. The Canadian Copyright Act recognized three main rights:

  • The right to produce or copy the musical work (such as sheet music)
  • The right to reproduce the musical work, including mechanical rights (such as cassette and digital audio reproductions) and synchronization rights (such as music in films, videos, and multimedia productions)
  • Performing rights, which are the rights to perform a work in public (such as a live concert, a recording or any other type of public performance) and the right to communicate to the public by telecommunication (e.g., a broadcast) * info taken from - https://www.socan.ca/creators/about-copyright
