Silicon Valley Copyright Lawyers

Advice, Counsel and Litigation on Copyright Matters

Copyright is automatic, but in order to file a lawsuit to protect a copyright, it must be registered with the U.S. Copyright Office. Registering is easy, inexpensive and can be accomplished without a lawyer.

If you are concerned about copyright infringement, however, call the Silicon Valley intellectual property transaction and litigation attorneys at the Hayes Scott Bonino Ellingson & McLay, LLP, law firm in Redwood City.

If a copyright is important to you or your business, it should be registered as a first step in maintaining and defending your copyright. It will strengthen your case, should you be threatened with copyright infringement.
