Copyright registration protects a person or company’s writing, content, books, music, photographs, and other original works of authorship. A copyright holder can prevent others from copying or using their work without consent. Additionally, obtaining a registration allows one to sue in court to enforce their exclusive rights. In some cases a copyright holder may even be entitled to statutory damages of $750-$150,000 if their work is infringed. This means that one may have the right to collect from an infringer without having to prove actual damages in court. The copyright holder may also be entitled to reimbursement of attorney fees in the event of a dispute.
Copyright registration is an inexpensive process and can be advantageous in many circumstances. Contact us for a FREE CONSULTATION about copyrighting your creative works.
