How to Copyright
The Berne Convention provides automatic protection for works without requiring any formalities. Under International Law, all original and tangible works have copyright protection as soon as they are created. However, in the event that the work is infringed evidence may be required to support the claim.
Although a copyright notice is not required, displaying a notice shows that you have an awareness of copyright and take infringements of your work seriously. If your work is infringed and your claim to copyright is disputed, you may need evidence to help prove your claim. This valuable evidence can be provided by our copyright registration service that provides verifiable proof of the date and content of your work.
Unlike most other intellectual property rights, you don't have to apply for copyright and there is no official register of copyright holders.
