Challenging A Copyright Infringement

Works, such as books, articles, songs, paintings and photographs, are protected by copyright the moment they are created. Problems arise when a client's work is reproduced without permission and without compensation. In investigating copyright infringement cases, the firm's IP attorneys review:

  • Access — Did the infringer have access to the work in order to copy it?
  • Copyright — Who possesses the legal right to the artifact in question and is a copyright registered?
  • Perpetrator — Who is the actual infringer of the copyright?
  • Damages — What are the quantifiable costs of the infringement?

Licensing Copyrights

In addition to helping clients register their copyrights and enforce their interest against infringement, the firm's IP attorneys also advise clients on monetizing their copyrights through licensing agreements.
