Understanding and Troubleshooting Copyright Law

Gain insight into what a copyright is, how to identify copyrightable subject matter and make sure you or your clients own the copyrights.

The internet has changed all copyright paradigms. Committing copyright infringement is as easy as, right-click, save as. Protecting you and your client's content on the internet is critical, and failing to do so can result in millions in lost revenue. Conversely, getting sued and losing a copyright infringement lawsuit can bankrupt your company. This topic will define what a copyright is, show you how to identify copyrightable subject matter and make sure you or your clients own the copyrights. It will teach you how to register copyrights, which is now absolutely essential to enforcement given recent supreme court precedent. It will guide you on best practices to enforce and monetize your and your client's copyrights. It will offer best practices, at the enterprise level, on how to avoid copyright infringement and best defensive practices after a cease and desist letter is received or an infringement lawsuit has been filed.
