At High Swartz, our intellectual property attorneys work hard to protect our clients’ copyrights. Understanding how copyrights impact your rights is important. Here is what you need to know:
What is a Copyright?
Copyright protects original literary, dramatic, musical and other artistic works.
If you obtain copyright protection for a particular piece of work, you then have the right to reproduce it, prepare derivative works based on it, distribute it, perform it publicly, and display it publicly.
In the growing field of Internet copyright law, it pays to hire a copyright attorney who is familiar with the peculiarities of Internet copy, images and sounds.
Sometimes, a copyright is not the best way to protect your intellectual property. If you want to protect an invention or the goodwill associated with your product, a patent or a trademark is a better option.
