Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Seattle Copyright Attorneys

Our Seattle 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 Seattle 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.

Trademark Permission

What Is Trademark Permission?

Trademark permission allows a company or individual to legally use a trademark held by another person or business. Getting trademark permission from a trademark holder can help your company increase sales, generate brand awareness, and increase positive customer associations with your product or service. But if done illegally, using someone else's trademark puts you at serious risk for legal trouble.

Trademark permission, also called licensing, exists to allow others to use a trademark, a word or mark that exclusively identifies one person or company as the source of a product or service. When granting proper permission, the trademark owner can take advantage of other benefits as well. Perhaps these benefits come in the form of profits for every item sold under the trademark permission agreement or a flat fee for using the trademark.

What Is Software Forensics?

Software forensics is a branch of science that investigates computer software text codes and binary codes in cases involving patent infringement or theft. Software forensics can be used to support evidence for legal disputes over intellectual property, patents, and trademarks.

Digital forensics and computer forensics are both tools used to recover computer files. Digital forensics tries to find files that are the same, and software forensics examiners focus on function.

Software forensics is especially important in patent and trade cases. In these cases, someone might have copied another person's code, but rewritten that code in a way to hide the theft. A digital forensic examiner may not have the tools or capabilities to prove a crime occurred.

ISPs Crack Down on Pirated Material via Illegal Downloads with "Six Strikes" Plan

Pirates Beware! ISPs are cracking down on illegal downloads.

In the face of widespread online file sharing, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as AT&T, Cablevision Systems, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon are implementing a “six-strike” plan to educate and eventually prevent pirates from downloading material.  You read that right—there are six strikes. The system is intended to target peer-to-peer file sharing websites, and not online lockers, such as Dropbox, or email attachments.

After the first offense is detected, the Internet subscriber will receive an email alert from their ISP saying that the subscriber account may have been used for “online co

Trademark vs. Patent

What is Trademark vs. Patent?

A trademark protects a symbol, name, word, logo, or design used to represent the manufacturer of goods. A patent gives property rights to an inventor for a new product, preventing others from making an identical product. Many companies use both to protect intellectual property, although the two are not interchangeable.

What sets a trademark apart from other legal protections is that it only covers a single mark. That protection might be part of a logo, a symbol, a phrase, a word, or a design. But a trademark does not extend any protection to the products manufactured by the company that owns it. Another business or person can legally produce the same goods or offer the same services unless tho

What Is a Patent and What Is a Copyright?

Patents, typically utility patents, and copyrights are both types of intellectual property that grant rights to creators and inventors and protect their work from being exploited without their permission, but differ in the type of property they protect.

Protecting Your Ideas

Business success hinges on ideas. Without an original idea, a business will struggle to turn a profit. But what happens when another business steals that idea? What protects a business from other people trying to take it's money-making products or strategies and turn them into their own? Most companies have two options: patents or copyrights.
