Securing And Protecting Your Copyright
Copyright is a form of legal protection that grants the holder certain exclusive rights for the use and distribution of an original work of authorship. These rights include control over the reproduction, performance and public display of a work, as well as the right to create works derived or adapted from the original. Copyright law covers a broad range of artistic, intellectual and creative forms, from literary works and musical compositions to business publications and proprietary technology.
Although copyright is secured automatically when a work is created and fixed in a tangible form, all works of U.S. origin must be registered before an infringement suit can be filed in court. Securing and protecting copyrights is especially complex and demands the representation of an experienced lawyer.
