Copyrights protect original literary and artistic expression that is conveyed in a fixed medium. For example, a book, a song or a movie is protected by copyright law. Ideas by themselves are not copyrightable. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to mail a copy of your work to yourself (poor man's copyright) in order to obtain a copyright. Your work is copyright protected the moment it was created! It is still a very good idea to register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office so you can be awarded statutory damages if your work is infringed upon. I can handle your intellectual property needs, from assignments to licensing to registrations.

Assignment of copyright is a transfer of copyright ownership to another. I can draft a copyright assignment agreement and record it with the U.S. Copyright Office. Need help negotiating a transfer? Let me handle the details.

Do you need to assign the copyright? If the work is a "work for hire", then no assignment is needed. I can help you determine which one covers your situation.
