A copyright provides protection for original works created by the author. Subject to certain legal exceptions, copyrights protect the exclusive right to copy and distribute a creative work for a period of time. A copyright litigation lawsuit is typically the way copyrights are enforced by their owner, who may be the original author or an assignee of the copyrights. Before filing a lawsuit, the plaintiff typically files a copyright application and obtains registration, if a copyright registration for the work was not previously obtained.
Our copyright litigation attorneys have handled numerous copyright disputes and lawsuits, representing both plaintiffs as well defendants in state and federal courts.
