Pursuing Copyright Violations: Copyrights are Only Valuable if You Enforce Them
Copyright law gives the creator or the owner of copyrighted material a limited monopoly over its use. Royalties, licensing agreements and other forms of revenue generated by creative work go hand in hand with properly registered copyrights. Unfortunately, copyright registration alone is not sufficient to prevent copyright infringement. Intellectual property litigation may be necessary to assert your legal control over your words, images, music or other intellectual property.
At WHGC, our attorneys register copyrights with the U.S. Library of Congress to protect your legal rights not only in the U.S., but also abroad. We also pursue infringement matters for corporate clients, artists, engineers and other individuals.
