The same rules of Copyrights, Patents and Trademarks apply in the virtual world as in the physical world. When you design and continue to update your website the logos, pictures, videos, software and content that you use have to be either owned by you or you must have permission to use them.
Using articles and media such as videos and pictures that are so readily available on the internet is so simple that many times people assume Intellectual Property laws don’t apply. This attitude can cause problems down the road. Properly obtaining the rights to everything you will put on your website is always the best way to handle your company’s online presence.
Watch this video for more information on Intellectual Property and your website.
You should also consider the probability of needing to protect your own licensed and registered Intellectual Property that you put onto your website. Investigating ways to keep others from using your property on their sites or making sure you are properly compensated if they do is another important part of managing Intellectual Property on your website.
Creating and controlling their online presence is an extremely important part of most businesses today. Taking the time in the beginning to build a professional website that complies with regulations and protects the interests of the company will lay the foundation for future online success.
