Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Dallas Copyright Attorneys

Our Dallas copyright attorneys & lawyers can help you register a copyright for your original work of authorship. This will ensure that you have documented proof of your copyright ownership. Because, if you don't file it, you can't sue if someone uses your work.

Once registered, the copyright lawyer you chose can also assist you with the development of licensing and/or distribution agreements so you can collect royalties on your original work of authorship. The copyright attorneys & lawyers on UpCounsel represent entrepreneurs, musicians, actors, artists, TV producers, and authors. Our Dallas copyright attorneys can also assist you with fighting copyright infringement in the case a party infringes on any of your copyrights, as they'll seek to prevent it and seek damages from any and all infringers. Many attorneys also have expertise in defending clients against claims of infringement.

There are three types of copyright: usage, full, and unique. Usage means the buyer gets to use the article one time, but the writer can use it again or resell it. Full rights will give the buyer all rights; they can even place their name on the article, saying they wrote it. Your copyright attorney can explain further details about the different kinds of copyright.

Copyright ©, the least expensive form of protection, means literally "the right to copy" an original creation. Original works of authorship include: Movies, drawings, books, works of art, music, textile and jewelry designs, photographs, lyrics, computer programs, paintings, architectural works, including blue prints and maps.

How Much Does a Trademark Cost?

Trademark Costs Explained

A common question many attorneys get is: "how much does it cost to trademark a name?”

The first step to calculating what a trademark costs is going to be how much you are willing to pay an attorney to research if a similar trademark already exists or not? Because it takes time to properly research any existing or similar trademarks that may exist, if not, you may be wasting your time and money filing a trademark for something that has already been filed.

After factoring this cost, the Trademark Office will charge a government-filing fee of at least $225, if not more, depending on how many classes of goods/services are listed in the application. Each individual class of goods or services you file for means that the cost of the trademark will increase by at least $225

Why Is Software Patent or Copyright Important?

A software patent or copyright is a legal way to protect your software source code, idea, or invention.

Every software developer or company has to choose between patent and copyright. Some decide they want both. To make the choice, you have to think about what you're protecting. Are you protecting the code itself, or are you protecting the software idea and the process? Getting a patent versus registering a copyright are very different processes and might also change what you want to do with your software.

Software counts as intellectual property (IP.) IP is an original work that isn't tangible, but that is valuable. Lots of avenues, including copyright and paten
