McGuireWoods lawyers advise clients on all aspects of copyright law. We have obtained registrations for a diverse range of original works such as computer software, books, architectural renderings, trade materials, brochures, newsletters and art. We advise clients on a variety of registration issues, including notice and deposit requirements. We also counsel clients on media rights, copyright licenses and transfers, and other specialized agreements.
To help ensure a clear understanding regarding the ownership of copyrightable work produced by a client’s employees or independent contractors, we help clients develop and use necessary, effective documentation. For clients embroiled in ownership disputes, we offer individualized strategies for resolution including, when necessary, infringement litigation.
