If you’re creative or your business uses or makes creative works that give you a competitive advantage, then Copyright Essentials is going to help you add value to your brand. Registering your copyrights gives your company the right to seek statutory damages and attorneys’ fees, and you’ll get a presumption of ownership of the registered works. These are essential to protecting your works from theft and misuse if you don’t want to spend hundreds of thousands on lawyers and litigation costs.
Plus, you’ll learn how to own your copyrights (and why your company likely doesn’t own any copyrights unless it has some type of written agreement). Download, customize and use a work made for hire, assignment and license agreement, and learn why you need all 3 of these in your agreements.
Creative businesses get a competitive advantage by registering copyrights, a valuable type of intellectual property protection. A business owner needs to use a work made for hire to own valuable copyrights and needs to register copyrights to get statutory damages, attorney fees and a presumption of ownership.
