It is called authorship to property or condition of Author. An author, meanwhile, is the creator or creator of something.

AuthorshipThe authorship of a construction site, in this way, corresponds to the one who devised and developed it. Take the case of the book “One Hundred Years of Solitude”: it is a novel authored by the Colombian Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This means that Garcia Marquez wrote “One Hundred Years of Solitude”.

The idea of ​​authorship can appear in any branch of the art. The authorship of the painting “Las Meninas”, for example, it is from Spanish Diego Velazquez, while the authorship of the sculpture “The Thinker” it’s from french Auguste Rodin.

In the field of music, there is also talk of authorship, although the notion can be a bit more complex or confusing. The lyrics of a song may have been written by one person and the music composed by another individual, and even the performance of the work may be performed by a third party.

Take the case of “Come Together”. The authorship is registered in the name of Paul MCCARTNEY Y John Lennon, while the first recording of the song was made by the Beatles (the band that was part of McCartney Y Lennon next to George Harrison Y Ringo starr). Years later, “Come Together” was interpreted by Aerosmith, Soundgarden Y Def leppard, among others groups, which somehow made it their own when creating their version.

It is important to note that authorship is protected by the Copyright. Thus, the author of a work has economic and moral rights, guaranteed by the law, about its creation.
