#19. Co-authorship


those who added, print, typed, copied, other technical things are not co-authorship.

Features:1) joint creative work; 2) one work as a result

2 types: 1) divisible 2) indivisible (each part can be use separate)

Example: Handbook

The difference between combined work and co-authorship is that co-authorship is one work.

Co-authors could publish their work separate in divisible works.

interview is always a co-authorship.

Where two or more people have created a single work protected by copyright and the contribution of each author is not distinct from that of the other(s), those people are generally joint authors and joint first owners (although this might not apply where, for example, these people are employees).

If someone wanted to copy or use a work of joint ownership in some way, all of the owners would have to agree to such a request, otherwise an infringement of copyright could still occur.

On the other hand where individual contributions are distinct or separate, each person would be the author of the part they created for instance where the music and lyrics of a song are created by two different people. In these circumstances, if you wished to use just the lyrics you would only need the permission of the copyright owner of those, but copying of the whole song would obviously need the permission of the copyright owner of the music too.
