What is a Copyright Lawyer?

A copyright lawyer is an important part of a creator’s career. They can advise through the registration of a copyright and can help the creator with filing and representing their rights in case of infringement.

In short, if you have original works of authorship, a copyright helps you keep them in your domain. Granting you an exclusive set of rights in your creative works. Copyrightable works include:

– Sculptural works

– Dramatic works that include music

– Graphic works

– Motion pictures

– Sound recordings

– Architectural works

– Literary works

– Choreographic works

– And more

However, specific criteria must be met for a work to be copyrighted. It is defined as an original work created by a human author, displaying creativity. Additionally, the work needs to be “fixed” by capturing it in a permanent medium. Permitting extended perception, reproduction, or communication of the work. In the US, copyright protection exists automatically from the moment the work is fixed.
