Copyrights

If a copyright is disclosed, we have two modes of recourse. The first is do nothing with regards to “protection”, because the inventor(s) already have automatic copyright protection (Moral & Related Rights) once the invention is created. The second is to register the copyright at the CIPO copyright office. The advantages of registration are in the potential licensing and assignment of rights, title, and interest in the copyrighted works. Licensing of any rights to the copyrighted works without registration may lead to complications when the copyright owner wishes to pursue other licensing endevours.
