A copyright is a Constitutionally protected asset that grants the creator of original works exclusive rights to the distribution and use of the works. The rights are limited by law and are not absolute. Copyright is a form of intellectual property that protects works of art and creativity such as oil paintings, poetic works, and many others. Businesses with their own creations, artists, and others with original works who feel the need to have their creativity protected should engage one of our copyright attorneys in Dallas or Houston for legal advice, professional counsel, guidance, and advice regarding issues such as infringement and licensing.
Copyright law is very important in several ways. First, it includes the rules that govern this protection and how the protection can be provided to authors of creative works. The laws also include some exceptions that allow the use of protected works without the need for permission from the author. This happens in very limited and specific situations, and it is prudent to have a copyright attorney assist you in this niche area of the law. Secondly, in many instances, copyrights are considered domestic territorial rights. This means the rights enjoyed by an individual do not automatically extend beyond the borders of the United States.
