Copyright covers diverse subject areas, including literary works, visual arts, sound recordings, and computer program code. Copyright is established when the work is created; that is, copyright does not require registration with the U.S. Copyright Office (USCO). There are, however, important advantages in promptly registering a copyright with the USCO, including awards of statutory damages and attorney fees against infringers in court actions. For many copyrightable works, registration is straightforward; consequently, our professionals can simply provide guidance to clients regarding the establishment of an in-house copyright registration process.
