The author in this article highlights some of the common misconceptions and most frequently asked questions in the realm of intellectual property. On the registration of copyrights, he said that one couldn't register, because in Great Britain copyright arises automatically upon the creation of a work in a tangible form, for example, a design drawing. There is no requirement for registration. However, in the U.S. one can register a copyright. The article also presents the author's views on design registration.
