Information about copyright
Copyright is an important form of IP protection, particularly in the creative industries such as web site design and publishing as well as in education. Generally speaking, copyright protects an original expression of an idea, not the idea itself.
In order to determine originality, it is necessary to establish the date of creation of the work. In the age of the internet where it is easy to update and re-publish a copyrighted work such as a website, we would recommend that updates are grouped together so that it is easier to keep track of when each change was made.
How we can help
We can help you establish the date of creation. You can lodge copies of works with us for a period of five years for a small fee. We would recommend that works are sent to us promptly after creation.
