Get your certificate of copyright within minutes.

Work registered with us receives a unique reference number with a date and time stamped digital or paper certificate to prove you are the owner of your work, under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

What is copyright?

This is the legal term that defines your ownership of something. It is used to protect the owner’s intellectual property against infringement. It protects your work from being used by someone else without your direct permission.

You can get copyright protection 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

You can mark your work with the copyright symbol (©), your name and the year of creation.

Copyright prevents people from:

Copying your work

People will be unable to copy your work if you have proof that you are the owner.

Performing, showing or playing your work in public

Public displays of your work is against the law and registered work can prevent this.

Distributing copies of it

You are the only person who has the right to decide how and when it is distributed.

Renting or lending copies of your work

You will be in control of who has access to your work and what they do with it.

Putting it online

Only you can upload your work online and anyone else would need permission.

Making an adaptation of your work

Our digital certificate can also help when people clearly copy and edit your work as their own.

What does copyright registration really give you?

Digital Certificate

In the event of having to prove you are the owner of your work, your digital certifcate with a unique refence number can be used.

Economic Rights

You have the opportunity to make commercial gain from the exploitation of your works usually by licensing or selling.

Recognised

This is the right to be recognised as the author of a work. This right needs to be asserted before it applies.

What is the difference between a copyright & a trademark?

We don’t just specialise in registering copyright, our sister company Trademark IT can help with protecting your company name & or logo by registering it with the UK trademark office.

Trademark and copyright are both forms of intellectual property, which can be defined as intangible assets, in other words, creations of the mind—such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names and images used in commerce.

When it comes to intellectual property for businesses, this can largely encompass any business ideas, as well as works or processes that come from those ideas. The main difference, therefore, between copyright vs. trademark is that, although both offer intellectual property protection, they protect different types of assets and have different registration requirements.

Overall, copyright protects literary and artistic materials and works, such as books and videos, and is automatically generated upon creation of the work. A trademark, on the other hand, protects items that help define a company brand, such as a business logo or slogan, and require more extensive registration through the government for the greatest legal protections.

So, what would you like to do?

Who are we?

Copyright IT was started by a web developer whose hard work was stolen by a client before the project was completed, causing a legal battle between both parties.

This is a strong deterrent against the theft of your work. Once you can quickly prove ownership of your creative work, this usually stops continued use of your work without your permission.

It’s more than just a deterrent though, should you need to provide the courts with evidence of copyright, we can help you every step of the way.
