If you would get falsely accused of Copyright Infringement, How would you proove to anyone that it is your work, your design, when it's a work made in photoshop or any other design program?


When it's a real photography it's fairly easy to show you are the copyright owner. Just by having the Original Unedited picture.

Hello and welcome to PSG.

This is very simple, if the work is yours, you would have all the original and dated files you used to create the work.

Don't forget that just because you didn't intend to infringe copyright doesn't meant that it hasn't happened. If somebody has already established copyright over a logo, design etc. and you inadvertently produce something that is similar (or substantively similar) then infringement has taken place.

This happens all the time in the world of music.

If you can establish that your design existed before the other one then you may have a case (as #iamsam said you may have the original date stamped files). Depends if you have the inclination (or funds) to fight it. Harsh comment - but unfortunately true!

Cheers
