Black’s Second Page 144
In copyright law, the meaning of the term is more extensive than in popular usage, for it may include a pamphlet, a
magazine, a collection of blank forms, or a single sheet of music or of ordinary printing. U. S. v. Bennett, 24 Fed. Cas. 1,093

Black’s Second Page 270

COPYRIGHT. The right of literary property as recognized and sanctioned by positive law. A right granted by statute
to the author or originator of certain literary or artistic productions, whereby he is invested, for a limited period, with the
sole and exclusive privilege of multiplying copies of the same and publishing and selling . them. In re Rider, 16 R. I. 271,

An incorporeal right, being the exclusive privilege of printing, reprinting, selling, and publishing his own original work, which the law allows an author. Wharton. Copyright is the exclusive right of the owner of an. intellectual production to multiply and
dispose of copies; the sole right to the copyer to copy it. The word is used indifferently to signify the statutory and the common-law, right; or one right is sometimes called “copyright” after publication, or statutory copyright; the other copyright before publication, or common-law copyright. The word is also used synonymously with “literary property ;” thus, the
exclusive right of the owner publicly to read or exhibit a. work is often called “copyright.”
This is not strictly correct. Drone, Oopyr. 100.
