Proving infringement - How can I prove that someone has copied my work?

If the infringing work is not an identical copy of the original work, but is substantially similar to the original, it may still be possible to prove copying. It will depend on the circumstances of the case, including whether there is sufficient resemblance between the works and whether the other person has had an opportunity to copy the original work.
