: I'm an independent spanish software developer who has been asked to do a program for an australian organization. I would like to copyright this software to have some legal backup in case of piracy. If i contact the spanish office of intellectual property and get my work copyrighted there, would that protection cover me overseas? Should i better ask for copyrighting directly in Australia?
: Thank you in advance.
Dear Carlos B,
A UCC copuright notice gives rights in as much as 125 countries. Without taking professional responsibility, I would recommend a UCC notice and then registrations in each of the countries most important as to use.
