Many people believe that simply putting a work into a tangible form (e.g., book, canvas, etc.) is enough to garner copyright protection. This is technically true, but it will not result in full protection. That’s why you should register any of the following creations:

What if Someone Violates Your Copyright Registration?

After registering your works with the U.S. Copyright Office, your creations have federal protection. If you notice that someone is using your work without your permission, it’s important to take action. Failure to police copyright infringement can actually reduce your standing to do so in the future. Fortunately, taking action isn’t always a difficult endeavor.

For instance, our law firm can send cease and desist orders and file DMCA takedown notices on your behalf. This is often a simple way to end infringing activities without the hassle of litigation. It may also be possible to reach a licensing agreement with third parties in order to profit from the use of your work. Of course, there are times when litigation will be the only answer.

The primary benefit of registration is that you now have options for protecting your works. At the law firm of Katie Charleston, PC, we can help you better understand these options and what might be your best recourse in a given situation.
