Copyright Attorney

What Is A Copyright Attorney

In the United States (U.S.), a copyright attorney is a person who is licensed and registered by a state to practice law and who then practices or specializes in copyrights. Our attorney is licensed in California. Our attorney is a patent attorney and can practice as a copyright attorney. Importantly, Carson Patents has a limited practice in the areas of copyright registration and licensing. However, registering copyrights is not our primary practice area and the circumstances are limited under which we would offer to register your original works for you. It really is pretty easy to get your new original work registered yourself.

For copyright licensing, you can also arrange licensing agreements yourself. However, our best recommendation is to seek legal counsel for licensing agreements. Copyright licensing agreements, like licensing agreements for patents and trademarks can get complicated in the terms fairly quickly. We recommend consulting legal counsel for copyright licensing agreements. We do provide copyright help with licensing agreements.

We do offer free intellectual property consultations. A free thirty minute consultation with our patent attorney to discuss your best next steps for copyright issues is available. Schedule a free copyright consultation.
