COPYRIGHT INFORMATION:Just because we undertake work on your behalf does automatically grant you copyright or intellectual property rights of the entire website. It appears that in Australia, copyright is automatically granted to the person who generates the content/media/videos - the copyright would remain with the generator, ie: Mediaworx Pty Ltd, until such time as they, Mediaworx Pty Ltd consciously, without duress, transfer the ownership of the content to a third party.
If you provide text for the website, then that text is your copyright. Apart from the obvious text and images, a website often contains hidden 'complex scripts / codes' that are sometimes licensed from 3rd parties, to operate certain features of a website and these remain their copyright.(s)
Contracting Mediaworx Pty Ltd or Mediaworkz.com.au to generate media for you, grants you a licence to use this media, but for the purposes of ownership (ie, resale of website or using our media for other purposes) you do NOT own copyright to that content. (Except for images/text/media you have provided us)
DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION:If you ask us to register a domain name as part of our agreement with you, under Australian law, you must be a registered business with an ABN number. If we have to register it under our name, to secure a domain name, we 'legally' own that domain name. (We will transfer it to you when you get your ABN or ACN but will be subject to a transfer fee)
Should you/ /anyone request a transfer of the domain name to your control, there will be an administrative fee involved. If we have to take photos, videos or create images, or create text to make the website, the photographs/videos/media are subject to copyright by us. We may at our discretion, assign this licence/ right to you upon request.
COPYRIGHT ARTICLE:We encourage you to read a recent article by one of Australia's largest website companies.. NETT.. regarding copyright. You can find the article here. http://www.nett.com.au/blog/who-owns-your-website (copy and paste into your web browser)
UPDATING WEBSITES:We do not allow people to update websites we create for them. The reason are:
1) It would require giving access to the servers where their and all our clients websites are stored. This would be a breach of privacy as anyone could then change anyone's websites and access any data that is there. We do NOT sell individual server space to people. 2) Most people don't know, or realise that websites are written in HTML, the language of the Internet and specialised skill is involved in changing this.
Allowing people to change their own sites, would result is poor quality/out of size images and text being uploaded and over time, the site quality would start to look very poor. As our name is attached to it, we do not allow people to make changes.
