Where do I register copyright?

Copyright protects your work and stops others from using it without your permission.

There isn’t an “official” register of copyright works in the UK, unlike Trade Marks.

You get copyright protection automatically, you don’t have to apply or pay a fee, when you create:

  • original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic work, including illustration and photography
  • original non-literary written work, such as software, web content and databases
  • sound and music recordings
  • film and television recordings
  • broadcasts
  • the layout of published editions of written, dramatic and musical works

There are other ways of protecting Intellectual Property. Read more…

Feedback from Shirley Moreman at GSTM Solutions Ltd

I needed some help with creating a Privacy Policy and T&C of website use for my new site.  Crimson Crab went beyond just providing this, with lots of useful advice about Data Protection and registering with the Information Commissioners Office as well as explaining what needs to be on each page.  I’m now safe in the knowledge that everything is fully compliant.
