Though the rights arise automatically on the creation of the work, protection of artistic creations through the Mexican Copyright law is a wise way of recognition of the property of art works. Information on the Copyright registration process can be found here.


Copyright protects original literary or artistic works. In accordance with the Mexican Copyright Law, it is possible to obtain protection in the following categories: literature, music, drama, dance, paintings, sculpture, comics and cartoons, architecture, cinematography, radio and TV programs, photography, applied art and design, and all artistic creations in general.
