The Plus IP Firm has the ability to see clients in need of copyright protection of their works at their Palm Beach Gardens office by appointment. Protection of assets based upon copyright law offers a different type of protection than the protection provided by trademark law or patent law. Many people are surprised to learn that copyright law protection actually originally stems from the United States Constitution. Copyrights can be registered by the United States Copyright Office.
Copyrights protect an original work of authorship once it is fixed to a tangible medium. Regardless of whether a work is a musical, art work, software or book, a work may be entitled to copyright protection as long as that work is original and fixed to a tangible medium. In order to have protection under the U.S. Copyright laws, you do not need to register the original work. Copyrights of a work exists as soon as the original work is produced and fixed to a tangible form. With that being said, if someone does infringe on a work, a lawsuit based upon copyright infringement cannot correctly be brought unless a work is registered with the United States Copyright Office.
