Ownership of copyright

The initial owner of copyright is primarily the author of the work, and there are special provisions as to who is the author in cases where this is not immediately apparent. 

However, if a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work is created by an employee in the course of their employment, the employer is the initial owner of the copyright. 

Unlike design right or registered design ownership, if the work is created as the result of a commission, the person commissioning the work is not automatically the initial owner. 

Copyright can be assigned or licensed.
