Ober|Kaler’s intellectual property lawyers help clients secure copyrights and safeguard their investment in works of authorship. With our counsel, clients have registered copyrights on a wide range of works that include:
As new media continues to develop, Ober|Kaler lawyers assist content-rich clients with strategies to efficiently protect and profit from their creative works. We protect our clients’ works from infringement and piracy through enforcement and litigation. Our lawyers are able to swiftly remove infringing content from the Internet under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act [PDF]. We understand the legal and practical issues surrounding the DMCA and fair use of copyright-protected materials, and we help our clients make well-informed decisions.
The public domain, combined with easy access to content available on the Internet, provides a rich source of content. We assist our clients in evaluating public domain status under U.S. and international copyright laws. Many of our clients collaborate with others to produce works of authorship. We help those clients navigate joint ownership issues and resolve disputes regarding work-for-hire, collaborative contributions and other ownership issues. We also assist clients in obtaining and granting usage clearances, rights and permissions, and negotiate licenses for use of third-party copyright-protected material.
As copyright law evolves, our lawyers conduct workshops and seminars to help clients understand copyright application and enforcement issues.
