Copyrights

Protection for the original work performed by our clients’ employees can be a critical element of their success. The significant investment of time and resources our clients make in computer software, creative design, written materials, recordings, and the like warrants the most stringent level of protection available.

At Brooks Kushman, we are experienced in providing a broad range of copyright services—from perfecting copyright registrations and helping companies formulate policies designed to avoid claims of infringement, to litigating on behalf of copyright owners and defending against allegations of infringement. We also help clients implement employment policies and procedures designed to ensure that the rights in employee work products are properly assigned to the client, and we can help structure work-for-hire agreements.

In addition, our attorneys provide clients with the services they need to maximize the value of their creative works, including developing licensing arrangements and other contractual assignments, as well as negotiating and structuring agreements that allow our clients to acquire the rights of others. Of course, we can assist on the other side of the table as well through negotiating and structuring agreements that allow our clients to acquire the rights of others.

Brooks Kushman can also help clients secure protection for their rights abroad, working with our global network of foreign associates to provide a full range of services, including litigation.
