Website protection requires your work to be an original work of authorship, be fixed so that the site can be perceived or communicated and include a minimal amount of creativity. Adding additional layers of IP protections will strengthen a rights holders IP rights against potential theft, attribution, improper use, ownership claims and unauthorised reproduction.
It is recommended that a rights holder, draft copyright notices specific to the works on its website, while also separately registering all digital content, writings, logos, brands, software, symbols, design, graphics, videos, images, music, photographs, compilations, etc.
It is important to note creating a website often involves collaboration with employees, content providers, developers, designers, photographers and other service providers, therefore, it is imperative you have proper documentation showing ownership from each contributor. Failing to secure this basic first step can detrimentally impact your IP rights as you grow your business.
