What is Copyright?
The purpose of the copyright law is to promote the use of copyrights and to protect the rights of the copyright owner. A copyright is an exclusive right given to an author of an original created work. It is property, an asset, a legal interest, protected by law. Included in the exclusive rights given to the copyright owner is the right to copy the work into any form such as in print or as a sound recording.
Willow Publishing takes copyright protection very seriously. Every title offered for sale or provided free on the Willow Publishing website has been provided by a publisher, composer or organisation that has claimed the ownership or administration right to the title being offered.
Titles offered on this website are made possible due to copyright protection under contracts with the owners or administrators of the musical and literary works. Royalties are paid to copyright owners for sales transacted on this website.
