Question: Do I own the copyright in a website that someone designed for me?Answer:
No, not necessarily. If the website developer has created a website for you then they will likely own the intellectual property rights in that creative work and design. However, a website developer will usually assign this intellectual property over to you upon payment of their fees. You should ensure that you have this assignment in writing to ensure that the intellectual property has been properly assigned to comply with the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).
