Copyright for Students

Why Register a Copyright for your Work?

Copyright automatically exists for any original work you create, such as a photograph, film, short story, etc.

Registering your copyright gives added protection to your ownership of the item's intellectual property and can be used as helpful evidence in a court of law.

Visit the Canadian Intellectual Propery Office website for more information.
