Copyrights

With today’s accelerating pace of technological developments in the methods of distributing and exploiting creative works, it is paramount that companies secure their rights to copyrightable works and property. The Shields | Mott attorneys practicing copyright law recognize this ever-evolving business climate and have decades of experience in tackling the complex copyright issues that many businesses now confront. In addition to providing our clients with in-depth legal counsel regarding the registration, licensing, and enforcement of their copyrights, we regularly assist our clients in developing and implementing strategies for protecting their copyrights — whether it be for architectural drawings, works of art, graphic material, written works, musical compositions, or computer software.

Because several of our attorneys have technical or engineering backgrounds, Shields | Mott is particularly well-suited to address and resolve the more intricate nuances of copyright and other types of intellectual property protection. To that end, Shields | Mott attorneys’ lengthy trial history serves as broad support for our intellectual property practice.

From initial client counseling through the preparation and filing of copyright applications, pre-litigation strategy, litigation, trials and appeals, our copyright practice offers full-service protection for clients seeking to build and enhance the value of their copyright assets.
