For authors, photographers, musicians, designers and other creatives who should be concerned about their work being duplicated, federal copyright registration allows for larger damages from infringers who duplicate the work without authorization.

 

Further to this, any creator interested in licensing or selling their work, should first secure federal copyright registration in order to properly contract for licensing or assignment of the work.

 

Contact our office at admin@gibsonlaw.nyc or schedule an appointment with one of our attorneys so that we can help you secure copyright registration for your work.

Copyright Protection

While the bundle of rights referred to as copyrights inure from the creation of the work, automatically granting creators common law rights, the further protections offered with federally registered copyrights are a worthy investment.
