Managing your copyright
Copyright is an important form of protection for intellectual property. It protects creators' rights in original works, such as a piece of writing, a film or music. Copyright comes into existence as soon as the work is recorded in some way.
It also advises on copyright assignment and tells you how to sell or transfer your copyright, license or buy other people's copyright, and find a copyright owner. Finally, it explains what collecting societies and licensing bodies are and what they do.
