Software copyright deposit

Use our copyright protection service to guard any original material you or your business has created, such as:

  • Software applications
  • Websites
  • Product designs
  • Artwork
  • Music scores
  • Fashion designs

Our copyright protection service gives you a way to prove when you created your original work.

It provides indisputable evidence in copyright protection infringement claims.

The service is most often used by software developers. However, it can be used to protect almost any kind of original material. If intellectual property is central to your company, using our copyright protection service will help you protect this key business asset.

 

How copyright protection works

Our service provides you with copyright protection by storing a copy of your material along with evidence of how it evolved – such as drafts, plans and notes.

As a trusted third party, we are able to provide this material as evidence to assist in any disputes. We record the date all material was stored with us, meaning our copyright protection service enables you to prove when you created your original work.

As the date of creation is so crucial in many cases (it proves beyond doubt who created it first, and is therefore the original owner), our evidence can play a key part in any copyright claims or disputes.

 

Benefits of copyright protection

Our service provides vital copyright protection to you or your organisation. It's a great way to guard the time and money you've invested in creating tools, software or other material that you or your business depends on.

Insure yourself against copyright claims. Using our copyright deposit service provides you peace of mind should a dispute ever occur.

Resolve disputes faster. Defending a copyright claim can take time and cause stress. Copyright deposit gives you key evidence to resolve things more quickly.

Protect valuable business assets. Intellectual property can be a key asset, central to your business. Copyright deposit helps you protect it.

 

Copyright protection contract

Our copyright protection contract is easy to understand. Here's how it works:

Deposit your intellectual property with us, along with any supporting evidence. (We'll help you understand what evidence to include.)

We will stamp the date and time of when this has been recieved on your order form and return it to you. This is your proof that we have safely received and stored the material.

In the event of a dispute arising, we will provide evidence to help you defend the copyright claim.

This is an annual ongoing contract, with a charge for initial set up and an annual fee.

The contract includes two updates to the material per year – further updates will incur a charge.
