Copyright ownership of works created by college and university staff is principally dependent on whether the creation of the work was done to meet the employee’s contract of employment. The rule applies irrespective of whether the person used the employer’s resources to produce the work and whether the work was produced during working hours.

Firstly, copyright protection is automatic in all states party to the Berne Convention. Whilst there may be nuances to the particular national laws applicable in these states, in general, there is a high degree of harmony. When the owner consider states that are not party to the Berne Convention, he must remember that copyright laws are territorial. In other words, they apply within the country in which they were passed.

In the UK many authors adopt the sealed envelope approach and post their work back to themselves where it remains unopened. However, this form is not suitable from a business point of view. While sending the information back to home is acceptable, where the work will have commercial value, it is in our view more appropriate to have your work formally recorded. By registering work with the website, they date and time stamp it to show exactly when it was received, proving that the work was in existence at this time. it is easy to access and is more safe. This method (sometimes called ‘poor man’s copyright’), may help in some cases, but it is extremely poor evidence as it is very easy to fake - for example by replacing the actual materials inside at a later date. The main problem if you send your work to yourself via courier or the postal service (including recorded/tracked and signed for services) or use any other system which requires you to store the work yourself, is that there is no verifiable evidence to say that the contents have not been swapped.
Related or neighboring- rights are a separate set of copyright-type rights given to certain persons or bodies that help make works available to the public. The beneficiaries of related rights in national legislation are usually performers, producers of phonograms, and broadcasting organizations. The terms can also refer to rights given to persons or bodies, who produce subject matter which, while not qualifying as works under the copyright systems of some countries, contain sufficient creativity or technical and organizational skill to justify recognition via a right similar to copyright

You can leave your copyright to whomever you wish. You may choose to leave the copyright in all of your artwork to one person, or to an institution such as a gallery or a museum. Alternatively you may leave the copyright in certain works to one individual, and others to another, or specify a percentage share of copyright for different named individuals. If you do not leave a Will specifying who is to receive your copyright when you die, your estate will be considered intestate and therefore subject to the English Rules of Intestacy.
Moral rights are rights in work that are automatically granted to the creator of work, which no one else can claim. They exist to protect the value of certain work other than their economic value and intended to reflect the emotional or intellectual investment a person may have made in creating the work. These rights can remain even after the creator’s death. Moral rights are only available for literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and film, as well as some performances of this work. Moral rights give the author the right to be identified as the author/director of the work (often called paternity rights), to object to derogatory treatment of work (often called integrity rights), to object to the false attribution of work, and the right to privacy of certain photographs and films.
Artist’s resale right is the right granted to authors of original works of art, entitling them to receive a royalty each time their work is resold through an art market professional or auction house. Original works of art includes paintings, engravings, sculptures, and ceramics. The royalty, which is calculated on the basis of a European Directive, is payable to the author every time each of the works is resold. This right lasts for the same period as the copyright in the work.
