Once a creator puts a concept into a tangible form, that work automatically gains federal copyright protection. The creator enjoys the exclusive right to print, sell, copy, license, distribute and use the work. Unfortunately, infringement of copyright happens all the time, and creators can easily be victimized unless they take affirmative steps to protect their works. Fitzpatrick PC helps protect artists’ work through copyright registration. We defend creators’ copyrights against infringement, and help creators monetize their work through licensing agreements.
Essentially any type of art produced in a tangible form can be copyrighted. We handle copyright issues for artists’ creations in all types of media, including:
When a creator wants to license a work for use, our firm negotiates licensing agreements that protect the creator’s rights and enable a reasonable return. If another person or company attempts to infringe upon your copyright, we pursue all available legal remedies. Our attorneys first demand that the infringer cease and desist unauthorized actions. However, often the most beneficial resolution is for the creator and the infringer to enter into a licensing agreement. This allows the creator to monetize the work and the infringer to escape onerous penalties.
