In this article, our Lincoln Park copyright attorneys discuss the process and benefits of copyrighting. They explain how to register a copyright, how long the process will take and the benefits it may provide. If you have more than one item to copyright our Elmhurst copyright attorneys discuss how to register multiple copyrights as a collection.
This article also discusses the three types of intellectual property including trademarks, copyrights, and patents as well as how they differ. Work that is deemed original, regardless of whether its published or unpublished can be copyrighted as long as there is a tangible medium that can be presented. The sooner copyrighting is done the better because the sooner it is filed the sooner you can file an infringement lawsuit to receive damages.
