Copyrights exist for original works of authorship that are fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyrights afford authors and inventors exclusive rights to their respective writings and discoveries for a limited time. Copyrightable works can take many forms, and proper protection of those creations is the first step to ensuring you profit from any and all commercial uses of your creative works.
Our attorneys routinely counsel clients regarding copyright infringement disputes. We defend against copyright infringement claims and vigorously enforce against any infringements of our clients’ works. We further aim to provide practical and strategic solutions to our clients, as they manage their copyright portfolios worldwide. As attorneys with extensive knowledge and experience in copyright law and litigation, we can lead you through the process of effectively developing, securing, maintaining and profiting from your national or global copyright portfolio.
Early copyright registration of your creative works provides many benefits in the future. As such, we highly recommend conducting a thorough review of your intellectual property assets, to see if there are any important items that remain unprotected. Registering your copyright allows you the ability to bring suit for infringement in federal court. In addition, registration with the Copyright Office at the time of infringement is a condition precedent to obtaining statutory damages of up to $100,000 per infringed work.
Speak to one of our qualified attorneys to ensure your copyrights are properly protected.
