Website design

The design and/or layout of a website can be protected by copyright. This is quite separate from copyright ownership of the various components of the site such as the text, images and sound. The future development of a website requires that rights to the website design be considered. The website developer usually owns copyright in the site. They may assign or give permission to allow for modifications to the design in the future.

When a person uses content that they do not own - that is, that they have not created personally - they should identify the copyright owner and seek permission to use the material. If the owner is not identified on the website, it may be possible to discover their identity by sending an email to the website or to the webmaster responsible for the site where the material was obtained.
