Marzie's Reads Copyright Policy


All written material, save that quoted from referenced texts or shared content with blogging collaborators, is construed to be the intellectual property of Marzie's Reads. All images published through Marzie's Reads third party social media sites (e.g. Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook) or posted on this site or distributed as Marzie's Reads content via syndication (Feedly, Bloglovin' and other such syndication modes) as unattributed content are construed to be the intellectual property of Marzie's Reads. Intellectual Property is property that is property that is the creation of the human intellect, referring to creations of the mind: inventions; literary and artistic works, permissible derivative works, which include review text; and symbols, names and images . Further information on intellectual property may be obtained at the World Intellection Property Organization.

Copyright relates to literary and artistic creations, such as books, music, paintings and sculptures, films and technology-based works (such as computer programs, electronic databases and, no surprise, blogs). It also applies to some derivative works, such as written or video reviews of literary or artistic creations. In certain languages, copyright is referred to as authors’ rights. Although international law has brought about some convergence, this distinction reflects an historic difference in the evolution of these rights that is still reflected in many copyright systems. The expression copyright refers to the act of copying an original work which, in respect of literary and artistic creations, may be done only by the author or with the author’s permission. The expression authors’ rights refers to the creator of an artistic work, its author, thus underlining that, as recognized in most laws, authors have certain specific rights in their creations that only they can exercise, which are often referred to as moral rights, such as the right to prevent distorted reproductions of the work. Other rights, such as the right to make copies, can be exercised by third parties with the author’s permission, for example, by a publisher who obtains a license to this effect from the author.
