    Generally, the types of works protected by copyright include literary works (including computer programs), dramatic, musical and artistic works, sound recordings, films, broadcasts, cable programmes and typographical arrangements of published editions.

    Staff who wish to reproduce or use a work in a way beyond that which is allowed by the Copyright Act, are to get permission from the publishers and/or authors or the respective authors' or publishers' associations or pay the requisite royalties to them.
