COPYRIGHTS PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED USE OF COPYRIGHTED WORKS
Mr. Goff represents clients in obtaining copyright registrations in the U.S. Copyright Office, and in copyright disputes.
Copyrights give their owners exclusive rights to use the copyrighted works in certain ways, such as copying, distributing to the public, preparing derivative works, publicly distributing, or performing. These copyrighted works can take various forms, such as literary, musical, dramatic, choreographic, pictorial, graphic, or sculptural works. One obtains rights under federal copyright laws when works are fixed in a tangible medium (e.g., recorded, written on paper, or stored in a computer). However, those rights can be enhanced by providing a proper copyright notice on the work and by registering the copyright with the United States Copyright Office.
