When does copyright arise?

Site Policy

In the context of THIS website and in general terms, copyright arises automatically when a work that qualifies for protection is created.

The work must be original in that it needs to originate with the author who will have used some judgment or skill to create the work - simply copying a work does not make it original.

There is no legal requirement in the UK to register copyright.

When an idea is committed to paper or another fixed form, it can be protected by copyright.

It is the expression of the idea that is protected and not the idea itself.

People cannot be stopped from borrowing an idea or producing something similar but can be stopped from copying.
