Competing for market share is a tough proposition in today’s business environment. A company needs strong ideas to provide a successful product or service, and of course the capital to back it up – but in today’s market, that’s not enough. A business must also stand out, offering something different that no one else can provide. A company’s unique difference might exist in the form of an invention, a business process, a product design, a catchy slogan, a written manual, a product name, or even a customer list.

What does copyright protect?

The Copyright Act of 1976 protects creative expression: literary, dramatic, and musical works; pantomimes and dance; pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works; audio-visual works; sound recordings; and architectural works. Essentially, any original “expression” is eligible for copyright protection as soon as it is fixed in a tangible form.

In many respects, copyrights are the most flexible form of intellectual property protection, covering works from books and music to computer programs and product labels. For that reason, copyright law is often misunderstood and misapplied, creating problems both for the owner of the copyright and the party who may have infringed on it. We can help you understand the ins and outs of copyright protection, so you can decide when and how to apply it – and when and how to defend it.
