copyright

Copyright is one of the main types of intellectual property – others include designs, patents and trademarks.  Intellectual property allows a person to own things they create in the same way as something physical can be owned. It is the right to prevent others copying or reproducing someone’s work.

The main legislation dealing with copyright in the United Kingdom is the Copyright, Design and Patents Act, 1988.
