Copyright

Copyright protection covers original creations in the literary (including software), musical and artistic domain, whatever the mode or form of expression. Acquisition of copyright protection is usually automatic once your work is fixed in some material form. However, in some cases there may be a possibility or, exceptionally, a need to register copyright (for a more detailed explanation see http://www.wipo.int/about-ip/en/copyright.html).
