Copyright Generally

Copyright is like owning a car, except in the case of copyright, your property is not a car, it’s an intangible creation that you, and you alone, have exclusive rights to. Your copyright is very valuable, and most creators have no idea just how valuable copyright ownership is, until it’s too late. The Copyright Act of 1976 provides that creators have immediate copyright protection as soon as the creative work is made (pretty cool, right?). However, you must also register your creative work with the Library of Congress, which is a requirement to enforcing your copyright in a court of law. Our firm offers the following services to our clients:

  • Copyright Registration

  • Copyright Enforcement & Infringement

  • Copyright Litigation

  • DMCA Takedowns

  • Licensing

  • Copyright Options

  • Cease & Desist Letters

  • NFTs

 

Registering your copyright with the Library of Congress is not only necessary, but has the following additional benefits:

  • Lawsuits: Once you have a Copyright Certificate, you will have the right to sue in a court of law (this is an important one, because if you do not have a Copyright Certificate, you will be unable to file a lawsuit to enforce your Copyright!).

  • Public Notice: You now have a public record of your copyright claim.

  • Prima Facie Evidence of Ownership: If you registered within 5 years of publication, you now have assumed evidence that your copyright claim is valid (they call it “prima facie” evidence).

  • Attorney’s Fees: Statutory damages and your attorney’s fees are available, so long as your registration was made within 3 months after publication of your work.
