Our lawyers can guide you through your options around copyright
Thinking about your business’ IP? Speak to a lawyer about copyright issues.
When it comes to intellectual property, it’s important to think about how you can own and protect that IP. Copyright can prevent others from stealing your IP and you can take credit for your work. If you need help deciding which copyright issues might be relevant to your business, chat to one of our expert lawyers.

Advice on the legal issues for your business
When you have an idea or thought (especially in a business context), you want to own that IP and ensure that no one else uses it. Once that thought or idea is expressed in some material form, it is automatically protected by copyright. This means that you officially own it and if someone else tries to use it, this will be copyright infringement.
In Australia, you don’t need to register copyright. However, it is common business practice to use copyright disclaimers or an IP Licence to manage their IP. So, it’s important to speak to a lawyer about how you can approach this depending on your business’ needs.
Yes, there are many ways you can protect your business’ intellectual property. Copyright is one of the main ones, however you may also choose to register a trade mark for that extra level of protection.
For example, if you’ve designed a logo and want to ensure that no one else uses it, you’d need to register that logo as a trade mark with IP Australia. If someone tries to use it, it can be legally enforced.
