What is personal writing ?

Abstract : the question of personal writing is rather complex, so we will consider it first from the point of view of the creator (I- part one), ranging from the initial stage of learning (I-A-) to the conquest of a personal style, whether it be in the context of literary creation (I- B-) or academic research (I-C). In a second phase we will offer a legal clarification (II- part two) in order to better understand how the concept of intellectual property has gradually formed (II-A-) and how regulations relative to copyrights qualify originality (II-B-). We will then examine the jurisprudence on a case by case basis (II-C-) to determine which limits the courts impose on this notion of originality in order not to encroach on the creative liberty of those who, in the wake of their elders, continue to enrich the literary heritage. The legislator who crafts the law and the judge who applies it in his judgments and rulings have, in effect, a duty to maintain a fair balance between the author's right of ownership to his work and opportunity for others to create in turn without being shackled by their predecessors.
