Why do we have copyright?

Report as

: the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, or distribute the matter and form of something (as a literary, musical, or artistic work)
This is the definition. The fact is if you do not. We have sharks out here that will use, steal, and copy what you have done and claim it is there own work. And in some cases you could lose millions if the work, lyrics, or sound bites are not protected.

so that if you write something brilliant no one can steal your words and say that they came up with it and you stole it from them

Because if we didn't then everybody would be stealing everyone elses work and it wouldn't be fair to the publishers.
