Do I need to register Copyright in the UK or EU?

There is no official UK or EU copyright database. Copyright protection occurs once the copyright work is created and the copyright owner is automatically entitled to all of the usual remedies under UK/EU law. No registration is necessary.

That said, the copyright owner must still prove the date of creation and that he or she is the author of the work concerned. Lodging these details with a commercial database provider may assist in this regard, but again it is not necessary.
