Many of our West Palm Beach copyright law clients are surprised to learn that copyrights on a work exist as soon as an original work of authorship is fixed onto a tangible medium. This means that anything from a recording, to a tattoo or a book can be copyrighted. However, it is important to understand that a business is unable to bring a lawsuit based upon copyright infringement unless a work has been registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.
The laws that govern Copyrights stem from the United States Constitution, federal statues and the case law derived therefrom. The Founding Fathers realized the needs to protect original works and incorporated their protection in the United States Constitution. Much like other areas of intellectual property law, copyright protection falls under Federal Law and is practiced in Federal Court.
