These days, copyrighted material can take a number of forms, such as software, written content, audio productions, and even works of drama or fiction - and thanks to the advancement of technology and creative platforms, this list grows by the day.

If you own a copyright of any kind, whether it be for branding, marketing purposes, creative work, or anything in between, you need to be able to defend that copyright from those who would misuse it for their own gains. That’s where the copyright attorneys of Howard & Howard come in.

What Work Needs A Copyright?

Copyrights protect "original works of authorship," including literary, technical, musical, artistic, dramatic, and other works, both published and unpublished, that are fixed in a tangible medium. Copyrights protect the fixed expression of an idea or fact, but do not protect the underlying ideas, procedures, methods of doing business, concepts, or discoveries. The copyright attorneys of Howard & Howard understand the value of ideas and are skilled in preserving and enhancing these ideas. 

Our copyright attorneys are experienced in the full spectrum of creative works and media, such as:

Additionally, our copyright infringement litigators enforce clients’ rights in the courts, arbitration, and other dispute resolution forums. If necessary, we initiate seizures of infringing materials and pursue or defend claims internationally under the Universal Copyright Convention and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.
