Copyright Registration of your Work

Register and protect your work from plagiarism thanks to copyright registration

These kinds of intellectual property rights confer exclusive rights to authors or creators of an original work. Copyright is automatically protected when the work is created, and Spain, like most countries party to the Berne Convention (170+ states), do not require copyright registration or other formalities in order to enjoy protection, which means that their works can be distributed without fear of unauthorized copying or piracy acts. However, copyright registration does offer many key benefits, such as proof of authorship and ownership. Copyrights or author’s rights protect all sorts of creative, artistic and scientific works applying to literary texts, musical compositions, media broadcasts, software, websites, drawings and photography and sui generis rights for databases against unauthorised copying and of certain other uses.

Copyright is every day present in our lives; when you read a book or the newspaper, watch a film or the news on TV, listen to music, take a photo, create a website, etc. Copyright law encourages the creation of art and culture by rewarding authors with established exclusive rights.
