A copyright is a bundle of several different rights that attach to an original work of authorship which has been fixed in a tangible medium of expression. In plain English, this means that if you create something and record it somewhere, you own the exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, display, perform, and create derivative works from it. Copyright protects items as diverse as books, poems, software code, lyrics, sound recordings, photographs, motion pictures, choreography and much more.
For business, likely copyrightable material includes brochures and marketing materials, graphic art, logos, business plans, technical specifications, computer programs, databases and much more. These items and more should be copyright protected for your business to realize the full competitive advantages and protections of such creations. Copyrights can produce a new revenue stream for a company. In addition, the reputational benefits of copyright protection might be extremely valuable. This might occur where your company has created a particularly useful video, whitepaper or process flowchart that becomes the standard within an industry.

Copyright Registration- Starting at $300
If you want to register a copyright for your work, I can help. Registering a copyright is not always a difficult process, but if you are not careful and do not know what you are doing, it may be best to let an attorney handle it for you. The relatively low cost of hiring an attorney, the peace of mind you receive and the time saved by doing so, will far outweigh the little money you might save. In addition, I can help if you decide you want to license that copyright later on.
How do you know if you should have me help? Go to the copyright webpage and look through the application. If you think you can fill the form out and do not have any questions, you are probably ok to file yourself. However, if you have difficulty understanding the questions or what you will need to deposit with the office, feel free to book a consultation and we can begin the process together.
Licensing Agreements- Starting at $500
Many business owners either do not understand or under-estimate the value that intellectual property brings to their company. Sometimes, it is only understood after that intellectual property has been infringed and is being used by someone else.
I can help you identify the important intellectual property you may have (Trademark, Copyright, Trade Secret), set up mechanisms to protect that IP, and help you think of ways and draft agreements to monetize that IP to make it even more valuable for your business. Think licensing agreements, partnerships, collaboration agreements and the sale of IP that no longer fits your business strategy. Please call, email or book a consultation today!
