Are press releases copyrighted?

Law Asked by Freelancer on December 21, 2020

Many companies have a press release section on their websites called newsroom or another similar term, and some even title it "for the journalists".

Does that mean those press releases and their multimedia attachments can be republished?

One Answer

Anything that somebody writes is copyrighted, even if you call it a "press release". That means that nobody can copy it without permission. If you hand it out to a bunch of people and write "press release", the only reasonable interpretation of the designation "press release" is that you are granting permission to copy (as well as paraphrase).
