Copyright Flow Chart


Personal Service
If you’ve written it or created it, we can help you protect it. Why leave it to chance?

Unlike a trademark, copyright cannot be formally registered in the UK – but this doesn’t mean that you can’t legally protect your rights to your work. If you’ve written or created a unique piece of work such as an article, poem or story, musical arrangement or artwork, you automatically own the copyright once the work has been fixed in its final form.

However, owning the copyright doesn’t stop your work being copied or used without your permission. That’s where Innovate IP can help you assert the rights to your work and deal with the legalities of enforcing the copyright should it be infringed.

First things first – it’s wise to enlist legal assistance to assert your rights as the copyright owner as soon as your work is created, to avoid any disputes at a later date. Innovate IP offer an inexpensive independent Copyright Verification service from just £30 + VAT – invaluable for gaining peace of mind.

There are many different types of work which are subject to copyright and that we can help you to protect, including dramatic works, sound recordings, broadcast programmes and even typographical arrangements. If you need guidance on your individual rights over a piece of work, think your copyright is being infringed, or would like to find out more about our Copyright Verification Service, give us a call on 0117 2140339 or contact us via our online enquiry form.
