Copyright Registration and Marking

Copyright protection arises as soon as a work is created. Accordingly, there is no requirement to register a work in order to secure copyright protection.

Works can be registered with copyright according to the following criteria:

  • The works are likely to be copied
  • The works provide or support commercial value
  • The works are published and available to the public

While copyright notice is optional in many jurisdictions, there are compelling reasons to use copyright notice on all copyrightable works owned or licensed to the Company.
