Copyright can be a powerful tool in a company’s intellectual property portfolio. HSML encourages its clients to promptly obtain copyright registrations in a number of different forms of works (ranging from product packaging and promotional material to software and traditional works of authorship) as soon as possible after a work is created to take advantage of the statutory damages/attorney fees. The firm has been successful in:

  • removing infringing materials from the internet using copyright
  • recording copyrights at US Customs to prevent the importation of infringing goods
  • obtaining international protection of copyrighted works after patent and trademark protection were no longer available
