Copyright is a collective term that means the specific right of an individual to the result of his/her intellectual / creative activity. The items that can be copyrighted are as follows:

6) works of art;
7) photos and their analogues;
8) works of household (popular) arts (sewing, ceramics, carving, etc.);
9) illustrations, maps, plans, sketches;
The person, who created one of the above works, becomes the author of such item of intellectual property. The legislation of Ukraine provides the author with specific rights and guarantees, establishes ways to protect copyright from unlawful use or destruction of the work.
According to the Ukrainian legislation, copyrights are classified as personal property rights and personal non-property rights (not all European countries have accepted this classification). A fundamental difference between the two groups of rights is that property rights relate to the possibility of using the work itself in various forms, while non-property rights are more intended to guarantee that the creator of the work is given the recognition of his/her authorship. Thus, property rights may be delegated to third parties (sold, delegated under a license agreement, etc.), and non-property rights are secured to the author for life.
