Are you an artist that creates original works of art for a living? Do you sell reproductions of your creation? If so, then you should consult with a Chicago copyright attorney to understand the basics of copyright law and how it can protect your business.
All artists, whether sculptors, musicians, photographers, or painters, have common law copyright protection upon the creation of their art. However, to adequately protect those rights, artists should take the relatively simple step to register their works with the United States Copyright Office.
Registration with the copyright office gives artists the chance to file suit in federal court and seek statutory damages up to $150,000 per infringement.
Revision Legal’s copyright and intellectual property attorneys have substantial experience in registering and protecting copyright rights. Our attorneys, located in Southwestern Michigan, provide Chicago-land clients the advice they need and the price they want.
