    • Hi. Nos 1 and 3 are 100% correct.Yes. Correct. Re no. 1 – copyright is an automatic protection by law provided as soon as a creative work is made. (Not to be confused with patents or trademarks or ISBN registrations). Re No 3 – inventions have to meet 3 criteria of which one of them is that ‘it must not be obvious to other people’. Thanks for playing.
