Copyright is the legal right of a creator to prevent other people from copying assets that they create. The types of creative work that have copyright under English law are set out in a statute called the Copyright Designs and Patents Act, 1988 (or CDPA). Copyright can apply to a wide range of creations, such as photos, surveys, databases and software.
Every business will have valuable assets that contribute to its success, whether that be financially or by enhancing its reputation. Understanding copyright is fundamental to running a successful business.
Many businesses own far more copyrights than they realise. It’s important to know what copyrights your business has in relation to the work you create for your brand, otherwise, you may not be able to exploit them successfully. Also, the less you know about copyright law for UK businesses, the more likely it is that someone could infringe on your rights.
