When these conditions are met, the author and / or copyright owner is granted certain exclusive rights relating to the exploitation or use of his work; it’s his copyright.
These rights can be summarized by saying that only the author and / or the owner can produce the work (make it “public”), and reproduce it (in any imaginable form), and it is also the only one able to authorize these acts. As an indication, to produce can mean to publish his book, to cast in bronze the mold of his sculpture, for an architect to construct in real his model etc .; to reproduce can also mean translating a novel into Spanish, engraving a musical work on a disc, adapting a play to make a television series, a film. etc.
