Unlike patents and trademarks, no official procedure is necessary to obtain copyright protection. Copyright protection is secured automatically when the work is created, that is when the work is fixed in a copy (i.e. any material work from which a work can be read or visually perceived, aided or unaided) or phonorecord (e.g. cassette tapes, CDs, or vinyl disks). Although a work is protected by copyright from its creation, there are several compelling and advisable advantages to copyright registration, including the following:
In order to register a copyright, an application, consisting of a completed application form, a nonrefundable filing fee, and a nonreturnable copy of the work being registered to be deposited with the Copyright Office, must be filed with the U.S. Copyright Office. However, prior to applying for registration of a copyright, it is critical to determine whether your work is protected by copyright. There are several categories of material that do not fall under copyright protection. Further, it is not uncommon for individuals to be unsure as to the kind of intellectual property protection best suited for their intellectual work. For these reasons, if you are seeking to protect and secure your creations, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to advise you as to what intellectual property protections are available and best suited for your intellectual work. The attorneys of the Wilson Legal Group have assisted numerous clients to defend and secure their intellectual property. They are passionate about protecting intellectual property rights and will strive to give you the security you need.
