The Best Way to Prevent Copyright Infringement | Raleigh Copyright Lawyer


Raleigh Copyright Lawyer: Preventing Copyright Infringement

Copyright Infringement typically involves copying or using the intellectual property of another party, without having permission to do so. While intellectual property law protects the creative expression of your ideas, it does not protect the idea itself. In order to get protection for your ideas, you must express your creativity in a tangible form, referred to as “works.” Your Raleigh copyright lawyer can help you get started.

How are copyrighted works protected?

Copyrighted works are protected so that others cannot use them in their own work, reproduce them, share them, or make alterations to them. For example, when an author copyrights his novel, poem, or other written work, he has the right to protect that work and prevent others from using it or making changes to it. If that protection is violated, the infringer may face legal action and fines.

Avoiding accidental infringement

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. Eldreth Law Firm, PLLC, will be glad to read your work and help ensure you are not violating any intellectual property laws.
