Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Houston Copyright Attorneys

Our Houston 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 Houston 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.

What is a Trademark vs. a Brand?

While your brand represents your reputation and business in the public eye, a trademark legally protects those aspects of your brand that are unique and specific to your company. It is a mistake to use the terms "trademark" and "brand" interchangeably, as they have very important differences. When considering the two, remember the "all-but-not-all" rule. All trademarks are brands, while not all brands are trademarks.

In its simplest form, your brand is your image. It is what the public sees and thinks about your company. A trademark is a specific aspect of your brand which has legal protection as it is a unique identifier for you.

Trademarks can be specific words or phrases, such as slogans, which are a vital part of your company's brand. They can be

Trademark Overview

A state trademark allows a business to register its mark at the state level only, so long as the mark will only be used within one state. It does not provide the same level of protection as a federal trademark.

What Is a State Trademark?

Trademarks offer the owner protections against the unauthorized use of any symbol, words, phrases, or identifying elements of a business that are unique and specific to your brand identity. There are two ways to file for trademark protection in the United States. The most well-known of these is to register a federal trademark under the Lanham Act. This provides protection over a mark not just throughout the United States but across all its possessions and territories.

Trademark vs. Logo

  • 7 min read

Updated October 9,2020:

A trademark protects a slogan, phrase, word, company name, logo, or design that identifies a company and/or its goods. A logo is a symbol or design used by a company that may fall under trademark protection laws. Many businesses choose to apply for trademark protection on their logos. When approved, a trademark restricts others from using an exact or similar mark.

In order to qualify for legal protection, a trademark must be unique. Prior to filing an application, the designer or business owner should conduct a thorough search of
