Copyrightable material is incredibly diverse, including: works of art, such as paintings, drawings, sculptures and architecture; literary works, such as books, publications and technical manuals; computer software code and website pages; entertainment works, such as toys, television, radio, musical compositions, advertisements and recordings—and much more. Although copyright laws can provide powerful protection for copyright owners, they must first identify and protect their works.
Our Intellectual Property practice group has assisted its clients—from individual writers and musicians to software companies and Fortune 100 companies—in identifying and protecting their valuable works of authorship. This includes registering the works, using proper notice, and, when necessary, prosecuting copyright infringement cases in federal courts. Because our attorneys are also experienced copyright litigators, we bring insight to counseling clients about their copyrights, either before or after a problem arises.
