So what is protected under copyright law? Unfortunately just because someone writes something negative about you or puts your picture on the Internet, this does not necessarily mean it is going to be protected under copyright law.
(1) the right of reproduction (i.e., copying),
(2) the right to create derivative works,
(3) the right to distribution,
(4) the right to performance,
(5) the right to display, and
(6) the digital transmission performance right.
