Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Raleigh Copyright Attorneys

Our Raleigh 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 Raleigh 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 Collective Mark?

A collective mark is a trademark used by the members of a collective to indicate membership in the group or to identify and distinguish the products and services of members from those of the non-members. The mark may be a word, symbol, or group of words. Collective entities can register and get protection for collective marks under the Lanham Act.

Collectives may be associations, cooperatives, organizations and unions, or public institutions. Only members of the organization that registered a collective mark can use it. Even if it's the members of the collective that use the mark, the collective holds the mark rights.
