Copyright comes with the creation of the work. This means that the author of the work automatically has this right, provided it is unpublished. The author therefore has the exclusive right to use the work and can authorize or refuse the reproduction, distribution, execution or representation, without any formal deposit of the work. This means that there is “automatic” protection. However, to be able to prove the creation of the work at a given historical moment, it is advisable to assign a certain date to the creation of the work, for example by affixing the time stamp to the file containing the work to be protected.
