Intellectual copyright policy

intellectual copyright policy – Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but ‘borrowing’ our name, logo or content can have serious consequences for both Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation and you. Please refrain. And if you happen to see any use of our name, logo or content used for other purposes , please contact us.



Our brand is our most important asset, because it’s how you recognise us and our product.

We need to make sure others don’t use our brand without permission to protect our legal rights and ensure you’re not misled or confused by others using our name. You need to be able to tell the difference between what really is a Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation product or service or something we have recommended, and what isn’t.

Generally speaking, we don’t have a problem with businesses stating in their promotional material or on their websites that they use the products and services of Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation (but only if that’s true). But we are very strict about not letting businesses use the Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation name as part of their name or promotional material. If you see something on Social Media that looks a bit suspicious, feel free to contact us.



Use of another company’s name (or similar words) in a website’s domain name in order to try to misdirect people to your own site is known as ‘cybersquatting’ and it’s a kind of trade mark infringement.

Where you are right now is our official website. We do not have any other sites. If you come across a site that appears to be run by Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation, but is not linked to from our main site, chances are it’s not legit. So please contact us and let us know!



We have invested a lot of effort, time, money and our artist’s individual creativity in our product and that hard work’s protected by copyright.

So permission is needed before reproducing our content and in all cases, we require that we’re acknowledged as the owners of that content.

There are times when permission to use content is not needed (for instance, fair dealing for the purposes of criticism or review, or if you’re just quoting a snippet) but we most certainly do own the choice of words we’ve used, our images, our art and the outcomes of the way we compile our information or data for use.

If you have any questions about Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation, please please contact us.
