Areas of Law Description
- Copyright Infringement
At the present time in our country’s history, copyright infringement is quite literally rampant. Those who appropriate others’ creativity sometimes do so because they do not understand or appreciate the law of copyright. However, infringement by large and small companies and individuals is often deliberate, as they believe the infringement won’t be noticed, or that if noticed, the sheer cost of litigation will discourage the author from taking any action.
- Author Copyrights
An author has the right under the Copyright Act to reproduce, translate, abridge, condense or adapt the work, to publish or sell the work, and to perform it or display it publicly. A written work copyright is violated when an individual or entity copies, distributes or displays copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright owner. A written work is copyrighted as soon as it is created in a fixed form.
- Musician and Songwriter Copyrights
The owner of a musical copyright has the exclusive right to make copies, to prepare derivative works, to sell or distribute copies, and to perform the work in public. When another person or entity does one of those things without the permission of the copyright owner, a violation of the Copyright Act may have occurred.
- Graphic Artist and Illustrator Copyrights
The hurdles for proving an infringement of a graphic artwork or illustration are the same for all types of copyrighted works — proof of ownership of the copyrighted work, and proof of copying. Copying may be obvious, or it may be shown by indirect evidence that demonstrates the infringer had access to the original work and the new creation is substantially similar to the copyrighted work.
- Photography Copyrights
Professional photographers are among the most prolific producers of copyrighted materials. Because they rely so heavily on their work as a source of income, they suffer a tremendous impact when their photos are used without their permission or compensation. And with the widespread, unauthorized use of photos on the internet, the threat to their livelihoods is severe.
- Architectural & Blueprint Copyrights
As with all types of copyrights, to prove architectural copyright infringement a copyright owner must establish proof of ownership and proof of copying. Copying may be proved by direct evidence or by indirect evidence that shows the infringer had access to the original work and the new creation is substantially similar to the copyrighted work.
- Contingent Fee Copyright Infringement Litigation
In the past, most artists could not afford to sue the large companies that infringed their patents and copyrights. With the advent of contingent fee litigation, inventors with viable cases can afford to sue. Contingent fee litigation attorneys take a gamble along with the client. This means that — except for expenses — creators who have been infringed pay their attorney nothing to take the case. If you win, you share your winnings with your attorney. If there are no winnings, you pay only expenses.
