What is Copyright and Creative Commons?

According to "Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture."

How do I know if something is still under copyright? There is a chart for that, created by Cornell University.
