We speak your language, and can meet your copyright needs.
Many of our copyright lawyers are talented and creative individuals in their own right – authors, dancers, and musicians – as well as patrons of the arts. We understand and appreciate the importance of copyright law.
We represent people and companies who create books, magazines and other written works of authorship; music and sound recordings; visual arts; television shows and motion pictures; theater and dance; architectural works; compilations and databases; computer programs; video games; web sites and online content; and multimedia works.
We assist clients with copyright registrations, and with copyright ownership documentation, including work made for hire agreements, copyright assignments and licenses, and performing rights licenses. We help with multinational transactions, and with copyright compliance, including at the Copyright Compliance Center. We provide clearance opinions, conduct due diligence investigations and investigations into copyright ownership and status, and advise on questions of fair use. We also assist with compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; obtaining permissions; copyright audits; and related opinion work. When our clients need to be in court for copyright disputes, we are well-equipped to protect and defend their interests.
