Our copyright practice includes giving advice and drafting agreements regarding copyright law. Although one’s creative work is protected under international copyrights when it is created, numerous, sometimes difficult, problems occur at this time. We evaluate the copyright creation situation and advise who is the original owner of the copyright and prepare assignments and agreements to ensure that the rights under copyright go to the proper party. We also determine what is copyrightable and prepare copyright applications to be filed in the Copyright Office to claim the rights in the copyright. This includes determining what the deposit that must accompany the application should be so that certain trade secret rights can be maintained. In addition, we handle copyright infringement matters for the copyright owner or the alleged infringer as the case may be. Our firm has taught copyright law in law schools and we have experience in both copyright infringement law suits and in negotiations to settle copyright infringement matters.
