In Australia, copyright protection is automatically granted to any original creations. This means that as soon as someone has created something original such as writing, music or artwork, they then become the copyright holder for the creation. As the copyright holder, you then own the rights to your creation, including the right to license other people or organisations to use that work. Therefore, when you are planning your business and designing your new website, you need to consider if you will be using your own copyright material, or if you are planning on using another person’s images and words. If so, you need to make sure you have their permission before you do so. Read more of Katherine’s article in Dynamic Business here.
