Render Right

Definition - What does Render Right mean?

A render right is a legal right that governs the creation of digital works outside the realm of copyright law. It gives a user the right to reproduce copyrighted materials under certain conditions.

Rendering a digital work makes the work accessible for human consumption, such as listening to music, displaying a photograph or reading a Web page. Rendering enables the analog copying of a work because an individual can copy anything he or she reads, records, hears or photographs.

A render right is also known as a rendering right.

Techopedia explains Render Right

To display media on a TV or computer, a user must obtain render rights from the rights owner in the form of a license or contract. Playing music is also a type of media translation into an acoustical format.

Play rights, print rights and export rights are the three main types of render rights, which allow for some forms of reproduction of copyrighted works, but only for personal use. When digital media is rendered, it is considered to be passed from its trusted environment and presented to another. In that way, the media is not considered protected, as it normally would be under copyright laws, but instead under digital rights management (DRM) laws.

Digital media copying is considered a type of export right. Those who obtain licenses to view or hear protected digital information are required to identify themselves.
