Why is copyright important?

The importance of copyright is an essential component of the modern educational experience. Copyright is important because it helps preserve the value of an author/academic/researcher's work, giving the creator the ability to protect it from unlicensed or uncredited use.

In this way, copyright encourages intellectual creativity as it provides an incentive for the creator to work freely, ensuring their work is recognized as well as protecting their livelihood.
