Copyright protection is different from other forms of IP in that it is automatic and that there is no official registration or fee. Many businesses create works that attract copyright protection, and, just as importantly, nearly everyone is a user of others’ copyright works and will need to ensure they are doing so legitimately.
As the creator (or potential creator) of copy, artwork, music, film and broadcasts, you need to know how to control the use of your original material. Copyright allows you to gain economic rewards for your efforts and to be acknowledged as the creator of your material.
This interactive workshop, delivered by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), will explain the concept of copyright, when it applies, and how it can be exploited. There will be the opportunity to ask questions.
