Answers for Copyright Multiple Choice Listening

Transcript and Audio

Transcripts are useful to review your answers and improve pronunciation.

Copyright legally protects an author’s works and, therefore, is vitally important to book publishing livelihoods. Copyright protects against literary piracy, which is especially critical in this time of easy digital reproduction and distribution. It is extremely important to authors because it constitutes the ownership of one’s original work. Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as architecture, graphic works, , motion pictures, songs, lyrics, computer software and written works like novels and poems.

Answers

Remember, that your answer must be a letter. If you write the word or words, your answer will be marked wrong.

(1) C

Comments:

  • The audio does not mention anything about an author’s future work. It is about their current work. The answer is not A.
  • The audio does not mention privacy – this topic is about piracy (notice the difference in spelling). The answer is not B.
  • The audio is not about adulthood. The answer is not D.
  • The word “subsistence” means livelihood. This relates to an author’s income. Their book publishing income. This is answer C.

(2) C  F

You can write this answer as “C,F” if you want. The comma is not important. Do not write “and” or “&”.

Comments

  • C = films = motion pictures. The words “motion pictures” is an old-fashioned synonyms for films or movies.
  • F = words accompanying music = lyrics. This is a paraphrase.
  • The audio mentions architecture. This means the design of a building – not an actual building. The option A is wrong.
  • The audio mentions novels and poems. It does not mention ALL books. Novels and poems are only two types of books – there are some that are not covered by copyright. The answer is not B.
  • Computer components means “parts of a computer”. The word “software” relates to programs. They are two different things. Computer components includes physical parts as well as other parts (all parts of a computer). the recording only refers to software, not physical parts. The answer D is wrong.
  • Nature’s song is from birds, trees etc. The answer E is wrong.
  • The recording mentions graphic works but this is not the same as “public source graphs and charts. The answer G is wrong.

How many did you get right?

When you get an answer wrong, you need to think “why did I get this wrong?”. If the reason is because you didn’t know the words, then you need to build your understanding of English. This can be done by reading different topics and making word lists. See this page for links: Useful resources

If you got the answers wrong because your technique is slow. Then practice will help you. See my main listening page: IELTS Listening Tips & Exercises

I hope this was useful for you 🙂

All the best
