Work type: Computer graphics and web design
As soon as creative work exists tangibly, it automatically becomes the property of the creator. UDIAR helps to protect your work against plagiarism and create an evidence that you are the author. Computer graphic (or design) is copyrighted as a pictorial, graphic work as soon as it is created and fixed in a tangible form. You can’t copyright an idea. Therefore your work must be fixed in a physical object, such as text document or a digital medium.
Registration on the UDIAR creates a record of your copyright ownership. Copyright includes the right to make copies of the work, the right to distribute the work, the right to create derivative works and the right to publicly perform or display the work. By depositing your work on UDIAR you keep all the rights on it and can regulate access to your work. Copyright protection of computer graphics lasts for the life of the author plus seventy years after the author’s death.
Uploading the work on UDIAR does not make it public. You can regulate access to your work: keep it private or share with others.
With UDIAR you get the proof of authorship, can sell or acquire work rights. Every UDIAR user has an opportunity to monetize protected works in the internal marketplace by providing licenses for use and distribution. You can provide free access to your works by Creative Commons license or sign commercial license and permit the licensee to use intellectual property in return for compensation. The rightholder sets terms and conditions for acquiring a license, including price and the period of validity. You can also alienate rights – transfer all rights to your work to another person.
