It is the set of norms that protects the author as creator of a literary, scientific or artistic work, which is a product of ingenuity and is original and perceptible by the human senses. The work can be displayed in different forms, being: novels, short stories, didactic and scientific texts, poems, drawings, paintings, sculptures, architecture, photographs, audios, videos, motion picture, television, computer programs (software), among others.

For clarification purposes, it is important to state that hence, merely the concrete form of a work embodied in a language, annotation, recording or other material that enables potential reproduction can be protected. Ideas (in someone’s head), methods and procedures which are not embodied in any object perceptible by the human senses, are not protected.
