The basics of copyright law – what a surveyor should know


‘The basics of copyright law – what a surveyor should know’ presented by Karen Brain, Managing Director of Matrix Insurance Ltd. Although an insurance broker, Karen is also a non-practising solicitor and is well placed to share information on a subject not fully understood by many.

Copyright protects your work and stops others from using it without your permission.

You automatically get copyright protection when you create:
– a survey report
– original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic work
– original non-literary written work, such as software, web content and databases
– photographs, videos and film recordings

Karen gives basic introduction to the subject of copyright law with advice to surveyors on what they need to know and what to do if their copyright is infringed.  Infringement is especially prevalent with surveyors’ reports.
