Copyright Protection

Copyright protects literacy work, dramatic, musical or artistic works, sound recordings, films, broadcasts or the content of publications.  Please note that copyright cannot protect a single word or even a slogan, such 'work' is too minimal to cross the threshold for copyright.  However, words and slogan may be protected by trade mark registration, see our trade mark section.

Our copyright registration service costs £70 plus VAT per annum and we will issue a unique reference number which relates to the material that you claim ownership of the copyright.  The date that the copyright material is submitted to us can be used to prove that the material was in existence at that particular date and therefore the copyright claim will begin from at least that date.
