About Copyright

In this section of our website we would like to give you more information about copyright.

Most people have heard of copyright but when asked to define it realise that they do not have a full understanding of it. In this section of our website we'll give you a comprehensive definition of what copyright is and why it is important to register your copyright. It is not only important to register copyright of your works straight away but to do so with a good, reliable copyright registration service that provides an independent third-party proof of copyright. We'll give you a full explanation of the reasons for this.

We'll also give you an insight into the laws surrounding copyright protection and the 1886 Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works. You can find a complete list of all the countries who are signatories of the Berne Convention of Literary and Artistic Works that your copyright will be valid in.

You'll also be able to get an insight into music copyright and joint ownership of copyright.

You'll be able to find out what copyright protects and what copyright doesn't protect. We will also tell you about duration of copyright protection and inform you of the disadvantages of various forms of cheap copyright protection such as 'poor man's copyright'.
