Everything and anything posted on the Internet - whether text, images, multimedia and other forms of content - is and can be copyrighted.

Anything created or made by an individual is considered their rightful property, and this includes online content of any type or description. It doesn't have to be registered - as soon as it's produced, it is deemed as belonging to that person.

It can get really complex figuring out what you can and can't use, and it can get you into trouble if you use something you aren't allowed to as you can be fined - and the fines are unlimited in their amounts, meaning you could have to pay thousands and thousands of pounds for copying or reproducing copyrighted material without permission.
