Detail

Copyright notices are published by the Intellectual Property Office to help explain specific areas of copyright in the UK.

This notice provides advice for people who may wish to assign their own copyright or have been asked to assign copyright. This notice is not meant as a substitute for legal advice on particular cases, but it can help readers understand some of the issues involved. It is not a conclusive view of the law - only a decision of the court can provide that.
