Should I register my work?

Self assessment

When you register your work, you are ensuring there is real independently verifiable evidence of your claim - this can greatly help you in the event of a dispute, but it may not be suitable in all cases.

Registration is of course voluntary, but the evidence this provides may be particularly important where the work may have commercial value, and it is often strongly recommended in such cases.

This assessment is designed to determine if copyright applies to your work, and also whether you should register your particular work.

The following questions will take you through the assessment process, and give a recommendation based on your answers for the specific work and circumstances.
