We've got it covered
Click on the sections below to find out more about copyright and how we can help.
In the UK and many other countries, copyright generally lasts for a minimum of life of the ‘author’ plus 70 years for most types of written, dramatic and artistic works. For other types of work, the length of protection may vary.
To get the benefit of copyright protection, a work must be ‘original’ in that there has been sufficient skill, judgement and individual effort in its production and the work has not been copied from another.
Copyright protection is a national right and therefore the scope of protection given to artists and authors is different from country to country and depends upon national legislation.
The first owner of a copyright work is the author, unless the work was created in the course of the employment of that individual, in which case the copyright work is owned by the employer.
When you find that someone has copied your work without your authorisation, they may have infringed your copyright. In this situation, a copyright owner may bring a civil action seeking a number of remedies.
