A copyright protects the unique way an idea or information is communicated but does not the protect the original idea itself. It protects things like books, films, music, artworks and newspapers/magazines.

Copyrights work differently to other IP. The second an idea or creative endeavor is documented on paper or electronically, it is automatically protected by copyright in Australia under the Copyright Act 1968.

They are NOT administered by IP Australia.

The responsibility of copyrights belongs to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.

You can apply for a ‘Copyright Notice’ to help prove ownership of the creative concept, though this is not necessary for protection it can help act as a deterrent for cheeky copycats. It also helps to have a ‘Copyright Notice’ when taking someone to court for a Copyright Breach. This is where we step in and make sure you have all your bases covered.
