Copyright is a powerful tool that enables creators of new and original works to stop others from copying and using their creative output for themselves.
How to protect copyright
A number of challenges exist surrounding proof of copyright. In Australia there is no formal registration process for copyright ownership. Instead, copyright simply exists in works when they are created. It is important to ensure that contractual documentation contains the appropriate provisions to ensure that copyright is owned in the proper entity.
