Current copyright laws allow creators and authors protection of creative works without formally registering their creative content. While the content is technically protected and attributed to the creator, it is important that creators, inventors, authors and businesspeople take proactive steps to formally register their creations to avoid legal issues later.
Protecting Your Creative Works And Content From Infringement With Copyright Protection
At Gammon & Grange, P.C., we represent companies, organizations, and individuals who produce creative content, helping them register their creations or take legal action to protect their ownership of the content. Our team is highly experienced in intellectual property law, and we are committed to protecting your rights.
For more information about how we can help you with copyright protection and keeping ownership of your content, please contact our law offices today at 703-873-7349 or toll free at 866-896-7682.
If you do not proactively register your content for copyright, you will not be able to file a lawsuit should you find someone else using the content illegally. At that point, you can go back and file the content for copyright, but it is a lengthy process, and the offenders will have months of using your content before you are granted a copyright and can take legal action.
Also, you will be unable to recover monetary damages or attorney's fees if you have not filed a copyright before the infringement took place. You can still sue to force the offenders to cease from using the content or passing it off as their own, but you will not have the option to seek monetary compensation.
Our firm will help you take proactive action to protect your creation or content through copyright protections. In addition to providing you legal options if someone uses your content, by having a registered copyright, you will likely scare others from using your content, avoiding confrontation altogether.
