Copyrights

Copyrights cover diverse subject areas, such as literary works, visual arts, sound recordings, and computer program code. Although legal right associated with a copyright are established upon creation of the work (without registering the work with the U.S. Copyright Office), there are significant advantages in registering the work, including awards of statutory damages and attorney fees against infringers. As registering a copyrightable works is rather straightforward, we find it much more beneficial (and significantly cheaper) to educate our Clients on how to file for registration, so they may establish an in-house copyright registration process.
