Copyright law is the cornerstone of protection for owners of creative works. Computer software, music, films, books, architectural plans, jewelry, and artwork are just a few examples of the works that benefit from legal counseling regarding the intricacies of copyright laws. Consequently, CPH counsels clients across the spectrum of creativity – copyright law is an essential component of our practice.
Digital communications, social media, and lightning-speed advances in computer technology increase the need for copyright protection. Infringement and counterfeiting can occur far too easily in the digital age. CPH has responded by building a copyright team with the expertise necessary to protect your creative works. We are well-versed in the laws, regulations, and cases affecting copyright owners in the United States and abroad. We also evaluate legislation and judicial opinions to anticipate their effect on your copyright protection.
We will assist you in determining whether your work is copyrightable. Then, we will assess the scope of protection available to you under United States copyright law and, if relevant, foreign copyright law. In addition, we will secure registration of your work with the United States Copyright Office and abroad. If necessary, we will help you enforce your copyrights using cost-effective litigation or mediation.
