There is no such thing as ‘copyrighting’ work. Copyright is an automatic right that applies to any work that is fixed in a tangible format such as being written down or recorded. It does not need to be registered unlike patents or trademarks.
A copyright notice consists of the symbol ©, followed by the name of the copyright owner and the year of first publication.
For example: © Queensland University of Technology 1999
In the UK, a copyright notice does not need to be present to ensure protection under the Act; however, it does remind users that the work is protected and identifies the copyright owner.
