Copyright & Trademark
YOUR CREATIVITY IS YOUR MOST PRECIOUS ASSET — PROTECT IT!
Did you know one single instance of using someone else’s work without their permission can cost on average $1000 or more to resolve a claim of copyright infringement?
Read on to find out more about why you should care about Copyright Law and Copyright Infringement as an artist, writer, musician, filmmaker, designer, content creator, or any kind of business.
The U.S. Copyright Office is launching the Copyright Claims Board, or the CCB, a small claims tribunal to determine certain copyright claims. This gives copyright holders an alternate to federal court to pursue claims.
"The CCB is intended for anyone in the public seeking to resolve a copyright dispute involving damages of up to $30,000 and is not exclusive to any parties. It will be a voluntary forum with streamlined discovery, straightforward procedures, and safeguards against abusive practices."
