Copyrights protect original literary and artistic expression that is conveyed in a fixed medium. For example, a book, a song or a movie is protected by copyright law. Ideas by themselves are not copyrightable. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to mail a copy of your work to yourself (poor man's copyright) in order to obtain a copyright.
