Your Work and Copyrights Are Our Priority
Copyright Law is all about protecting the the works that you create. These works can be literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture.
If you are not protecting any of these types of work, then you are leaving value not counted for and not calculated.
The primary purpose of copyright law is not so much to protect the interests of the authors/creators, but rather to promote the progress of science and the useful arts—that is—knowledge. To accomplish this purpose, copyright ownership encourages authors/creators in their efforts by granting them a temporary monopoly, or ownership of exclusive rights for a specified length of time.
Let the team at Verna Law help you protect your copyrights from applications to licenses to litigation.
