Copyright protection is incredibly important to protect your artistic endeavors. In this digital age, many people use art without paying the artist. Copyrighting your work gives artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, and others the right to exclusivity of their works.
Copyright law is integral to those who want to protect their expressive endeavors and gives the copyright owner a leg to stand on when someone uses their work without prior authorization.
Copyright law only extends to the expression itself and not the “idea” of the expression. This means that you cannot protect an idea that you have in your mind. For example, someone else may be able to use an idea they had after reading a book, but they cannot republish any part of the book without prior authorization from the author or copyright holder.
We will speak with you regarding your creative work to see if it qualifies for copyright protection.
Our office will submit your copyright application and will await further instructions.
