Copyright for Creators

If you are creating works which are intended to be reproduced and re-used by others, this immediately raises copyright issues and it is essential that you are familiar with your copyright rights and responsibilities. If you are able to identify IP issues when they arise, you will be better placed to make informed decisions with regard to your management of those issues and so reduce the potential for dispute.

Placing a copyright statement on your work identifies you as the creator of that work and may make it easier for you to assert your rights. An effective copyright statement can be as simple as:

  • Copyright symbol ©
  • Year of publication or creation
  • Your name
