When copyrighted material is used illegally

Business owners, as well as creative individuals, choose to copyright various kinds of work to ensure that their efforts are not misused by others. Unfortunately, copyrighted material is used in violation of the law far too often. Moreover, those who disregard copyright law have even more avenues to carry out this offense in the digital age. When copyrighted material is stolen, it can have an impact on copyright holders in a way that extends beyond financial loss. In some instances, opportunities may be squandered and those whose rights were violated may experience emotional distress.

When putting together this contract, it is pivotal to carefully go over the details of the agreement and make sure that you have a document which will protect your business in the years to come. At Codispoti & Associates, our firm knows how crucial it is to draft these agreements properly.
