Copyright gives copyright owners the exclusive right to control what copies are made of their works.
(That was sixteen words.) \”Works\”, by the way, means any original artistic, literary, musical, or dramatic works, or any compilations of these works. So this includes patterns (written out or charted), photographs and drawings, and books or leaflets containing more than one pattern. \”Copies\” does not mean only photostatic or exact copies; it includes colourable imitations or derivative works.
