Protecting Your Copyrights in Digital Media

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The copyright laws weren’t written with the internet in mind. As an IP attorney, I often meet people who’ve had their content illegally reproduced on other websites & in print. This presentation will explain your copyright rights & how to maximize your copyright protection by registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office. There are cost-effective ways to register you works & strict deadlines you must follow to maximize your rights. If you do this, you will have the most options for responding to copyright infringement. If someone steals your content, your desired outcome will dictate which course of action you should pursue, which could be filing a lawsuit or sending a cease & desist letter or DMCA takedown notice. The internet is constantly evolving & the law cannot keep up with the changes, so it’s often hard to discern the best way to protect your rights. You may want to register each work individually or you may want to register a group of works as a single collective work.
