British Copyright Council: UK Copyright Highway Code resources

Copyright is a vital tool for creators, as it gives them the power to choose how their work is used. However, it isn’t always the easiest topic to understand.

The British Copyright Council has produced some short, accessible resources for creators on the subject of copyright as part of its ‘UK Copyright Highway Code’ series.

These helpful information sheets focus on topics like copyright basics, exceptions and fair dealing and moral rights. You can find them all at, along with information about joint authorship, protection of titles and performers’ rights.

At ALCS, we’re dedicated to educating the next generation of creators on the importance of copyright. We’ve produced our own tools that people can use to help teach their children about copyright and what it does to help protect creators’ work. Find these on the ALCS website at
