Copyright Protection and Counseling

Protect your creative works.

Copyright protects original artistic and literary works that are fixed in a tangible form of expression. Artistic and literary works include songs, films, plays, poems, paintings, and architectural designs. A copyright covers the rights to reproduce, distribute, perform, and display the work and to prepare derivative works from your original work.

We advise clients on a wide variety of copyright issues involving many types of copyrighted works, such as computer programs, musical recordings, books and other printed materials, motion pictures, sculptures and architectural works.

We appreciate your creativity

We can help you protect your creation

As the author of your creative work, you have the right – the copyright – to determine how it is used. You attain the copyright as soon as you fix your work in a tangible medium. Nothing else is required. However, protecting that copyright requires action. Our team of attorneys can guide you determining what action is required.

Copyright Registration – A Powerful Tool

Although a U.S. federal registration of your copyright is not required for protection, it provides significant advantages. We strongly recommend that you federally register your copyright, and we would be happy to help you navigate the process.

Enforcing Your Copyright

How do you know if someone is infringing your copyright? What can you do about it if someone is making use of your work without your permission? There are no “copyright police” that will enforce your rights for you. It’s up to you. Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone. Our IP attorneys can help you evaluate the situation, contact the infringer to try to reach a resolution, and – if all else fails – prepare and file a lawsuit to enforce your copyright.

Copyright for Musicians and Song Writers – It’s Complicated

There are various copyright issues that are specific to musicians and the recording industry. If you’re in the music industry, you need to know how to properly protect your rights and how to go about getting a license to rights held by others. We love music, and we love to help musicians with the complicated legal stuff so they can take care of the creative stuff.
