Whether you publish a book, direct a film, make music, code software, draft architectural plans, or take a photo, copyrights are omnipresent. They are grounded in the U.S. Constitution and provide protection for both, published or unpublished works.
Written agreements are enforceable and can provide the vital protection your business needs based on the various terms and conditions. Additionally, the structure of your business is one of the most important to consider before commencement of your business activities, whether it be a limited liability company, partnership, C or S corporation, or a nonprofit.
Being the beneficiary of IP rights is only one part of the equation. Policing those exclusive legal rights, and then enforcing them in a court of law ensures that no third party will use or benefit from the goodwill of your intellectual property without your consent. While amicable resolutions are crucial in interest of time and money, sometimes, having the court decide in the interest of justice is a necessary solution.
Legal disagreements may arise from commercial and business relationships. While the goal is to amicably resolve and settle, sometimes, enforcing your rights in a court of law is necessary for injunctive and equitable relief. Legal disputes may include issues such as breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of confidentiality and non-disclosure, and disputes between members and partners.
