Chapter 1. Finding Inspiration > Protecting Your Own Copyrights

Protecting Your Own Copyrights

You can't copy or use content created by another Web designer without permission. The same applies to the content you create for your client. You own the copyright to all of the graphic elements you create for the design, such as the interface and buttons, as well as the layout of the page. However, the content you create is often mingled with other content, such as images and text created by the client. Therefore, who owns the copyright to what is kind of a gray area. As the Web designer, you can claim copyright to the content you create for your design by including the following statement on the bottom of each Web page: Web Design Copyright © 2006 your name or company name All Rights Reserved. You should copyright your client's original material with the following statement: Content copyright © 2006 your client's name All Rights Reserved.

This book is written by Web designers, not legal experts. The information presented in this section should not be construed as advice from legal counsel. In order to fully protect your material and your client's material, you should contact a lawyer whose area of expertise is intellectual property.
