Our Copyright Practice

Get Your Copyright Registered Today

Every time you create a unique creative work in a tangible medium (a story, music score, picture, recording, etc.) technically you already own the copyright to that work.  At that moment that it comes into existence, so long as unique, you own a common law copyright.  However, under US law, in order to enforce your copyright and take action against copycats and infringers, that copyright needs to be registered with the US Copyright Office.  Protect your works and ideas with the help of our experienced and reliable copyright team. With copyright registration and other flat fee legal services we provide, you can make sure that your copyrights are protected to the fullest extent of the law.

COPYRIGHT SERVICES  WE PROVIDE:

Copyright Advice & Consultation

The first step is to know what rights you have and what options are there to protect you.  We will give you the advice you need and help you develop a plan or strategy that takes into account your various risks and your budget to provide a solution that maximizes protection without maxing out your budget.

Licensing

If you intend to use your copyrighted work to make money, chances are you will need to let someone else work with or use that copyrighted product.   In order to preserve your rights, we can make sure that every commercial contract that you enter assures your ownership of your valuable copyrights, and restricts how others can use and/or profit from your work.  

Copyright Registration

Anyone can register their creative works with the Copyright Office on their own, either online or by mail.  However, making even the single most error in that process can cost you by invalidating the very protections you are seeking.  We offer flat fee representation to register your works with the Copyright Office to make sure it is done and headache-free.

Sale & Transfer

Copyrights, like any other asset, can be bought and sold.  We can make sure that the contract documentation surrounding the transaction is done properly. Additionally, upon the completion of the sale/transfer, we can assist with registering that assignment of rights with the Copyright Office.

Infringement & Enforcement

Getting your copyright registered is not the end of the process.  We will work with you to ensure that cease and desist notices are sent to infringers to police your copyright.  If you have been wrongfully accused of infringing someone else's copyright - our office can assist you to determine your rights and course of action to defend yourself.
