Copyright is a set of rights that govern the use of certain expressions of ideas or information. Copyright applies to all original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works. Copyright also applies to other kinds of subject matter such as a performer’s performance, communication signals and sound recordings. The creator of the work is typically the copyright owner.
Copyright law protects creativity by providing rights to copyright owners. These rights encompass the rights to publish or use ones work in any number of ways. Some of these rights can also be assigned, such as the right to reproduce a certain work.
Deeth Williams Wall LLP helps owners of copyrights administer their rights appropriately. This includes registering copyright and advising on a copyright holder’s rights, and enforcing copyright, or defending against claims of copyright infringement, through litigation.
