The rights someone has with a copyright protect his or her work from being used without permission. Here are some general examples of copyright infringement:

  • When someone uses a work explicitly without the permission of the owner. An example would be claiming a story someone else wrote as your own.
  • When someone copies or reproduces a work. For example, using parts of someone else’s song to create a new song and then attempting to sell it.
  • When someone takes a story and creates another form of expression using it, such as taking the premise of a book to write a screenplay without getting permission from the original author.
  • When someone distributes another person’s works and attempts to make money from it. An example would be a music sharing service that uses music without paying for the rights to distribute it.
  • When someone displays a work of art without permission, which can be in a public place, on a website or in film.
  • When someone publicly performs a play, dance or show, without the owner’s permission.

Stay tuned for the next part in this series where we will give you examples of copyright infringement cases as well as explain when there are exceptions to infringement in our next blog.

Sometimes, infringement may be committed unwillingly as writers don't mean to violate the copyright on a novel that they read years ago. To ensure that you do not accidentally infringe, it may be best to allow your entertainment lawyer to read over your written work before you publish it. Our lawyer in Raleigh NC will be glad to read your work and help ensure you are not violating any intellectual property laws.
