ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on the issue of copyright protection for poetry. Copyright does not protect intelligence or ideas, but only an author's original thinking. Often, though, it is difficult to distill protected thinking from unprotected ideas or facts that reside in the public area. Copyright protection for poetry, is particularly complex because a poem's ideas are often joined with a poem's sounds, shape, and images. It is often not only difficult to extract ideas from a poem's surface, but once ideas are discovered, it may even be difficult to articulate exactly what these main ideas or themes are.
