Copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. The duration of a copyright protection is often the author's life plus 70 years, or 95 or 120 years depending on the nature of authorship.

Copyright did not only protect books, articles or other written work, it can also be used to protect pictures, videos, music, or even computer programing code. Our clients often use copyright to protect their product catalogs or pictures from unauthorized use by competitors or other parties. With today’s e-commerce and online sales, pictures are used extensively for sales of products over the internet. This will make it even more important to enforce the copyrights on the pictures and catalogs.

However, now all works are qualified for copyright protection, and here is when we will come in and help our client to meet those requirements, or alternatively seeking protection using other vehicles.
