17. Does the Intellectual Property Office provide any lists of songs, books, or movies that have already become public property?

The R.O.C. Copyright Act adopts the principle of protection upon creation. That is, a creator enjoys copyrights as soon as he or she completed a work. Registration is not a prerequisite for obtaining copyright. The former copyright registration system was abolished in a Copyright Act amendment promulgated on January 21, 1998, and the government agency in charge of copyright matters has ceased accepting copyright registrations since January 23, 1998. By the same token, the Intellectual Property Office does not provide any lists of songs, books, or movies that have already become public property.
