All the professionals are of the view that copyright is the best means for the protection of intellectual rights of creativity of artists and authors worldwide. Though copyrights have widened its span to number of works still it is considered as best for preventing authorial creativity for all the works which are covered by copyright laws of countries. Copyright laws states that creativity is an essential element for deciding the protection of work through copyright laws. Creativity is termed as a sufficient condition for protection any work under copyright laws. Creativity according to some analyst’s is not the only dimension which can completely make any work a copyright protected work (Lewis, 2014). The purpose of intellectual property protection is not only to promote creativity. If any work is protected under patent or copyright laws it enhances the net gain of creativity production as with these laws more creative efforts are stimulated. On the other hand if a subject matter is not published under protected copyright laws it can be used by others freely for making more creative works with the help of that creative work. This does not mean that protection of works can be completely denied but if it is allowed it will paves way for more creative and innovative works.
Creativity alone cannot diagnose the subject matters which need to be protected by copyright laws and which should be covered by the strict rules of patent laws. As per the needs of today computer programs which are the results of technological advancements are also protected under copyright laws. Computer programs are results of creative works of programmers therefore they form a part of patented subject matter. Copyright laws must exclude from its protective purview features such as ideas, concepts, procedures, operating methods and systems regardless of their creative aspects. For acknowledging creativity as a necessary condition for protection under copyright laws the subject matter should be properly arrogated that matter belongs to patent laws or outside intellectual property systems.
