Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Los Angeles Copyright Attorneys

Our Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Are Fanciful Trademarks?

Fanciful trademarks are made-up terms invented for the single purpose of functioning as a trademark. They can be either neologisms (words that don't mean anything in the English language) or archaic words that are out of common usage.

Famous examples of fanciful trademarks include Exxon, Kodak, Pepsi, Clorox, and Xerox.

What does a Trademark Cost?

A trademark costs $400 for electronic trademark applications and $600 for paper filings, both per-class of goods or services selected registering for a federal trademark through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Should You Register for a Trademark?

If the user relies on just common-law rights for their trademark, they won't have to pay fees to formalize rights for it. However, there are some risks. Someone else may may obtain the trademark. If a trademark user has obtained the right to use the mark in a certain geographic location, you will lose the right to use your trademark in that area. Or the trademark holder may accidentally infringe upon a mark that is
