Copyright

What is Copyright?

Copyright protects your literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works from being copied by unauthorised parties.

  • Original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic work
  • Original non-literary written work including web content, databases and software
  • Music and sound recordings
  • TV and film recordings
  • Broadcasts
  • Layout of published editions of written, dramatic and musical works

Copyright can cover everyday business documents, adverts, literature and databases and can provide valuable protection when other forms of Intellectual Property protection aren’t applicable.

How does it work ?

You can add the copyright symbol to your work along with your name and the year of creation. However, marking your work does not affect the level of protection.

In the UK, original work is automatically protected once it is produced in a permanent form. In other countries, copyright protection may need to be registered in order to prevent others using it without your permission. The length of copyright protection varies depending on the type of work. The date of creation of a copyright is important to the start date of the protection.
