We recognize the value of copyrights in encouraging creativity in artistic expression. We handle matters relating to the ownership of copyrights in industries ranging from photography, fashion and film, to software and Internet-related works. We secure rights through the United States Copyright Office, or internationally by coordinating registration efforts utilizing our established network of international counsel.
We have a wide range of clients to whom we provide our copyright expertise, including many located in the Naples area. Most recently, we have conducted a significant amount of work assisting software development firms and computer programmers in obtaining copyright registrations for their software; namely, for the underlying source code. Often times source code is the only aspect of software that can be protected, and for those matters, a U.S. Copyright Registration becomes all the more important.
