how much do a copyright lawyer charge for written works...like music or other writting?
State/Country relating to question: Massachusetts
you want to know the cost for an attorney to register a single work with the Copyright Office correct?
i have more than one more like over 200 and 3d art
do i have to pay seperatly for each work?
it depends on whether you are in a big city or small.....small firm or large, but generally the costfor an attorney to file a copyright application would be about
would be about ...you did not finish your sentence.
$300 at a reasonable place
wow thats good for each or all?
i'd say that's on the lower end
for each....although you could get a bulk discount perhaps
that does not include the $35 per work govt fee
i've known of places charging from $300-600 per work depending on the place
lol...ok thanks a lot your great looking if thats you, and i got a great answer thank you so much. well im a great writter and i know i can make it...cause my poems make anyone cry.
thanks, and with a little research/browsing you can file the copyrights yourself as well at www.copyright.gov
of course, copyright protection is automatical, registration is not required....but it has major benefits in the event of a lawsuit
it is me
ok thank you. oh if everyone was more like you. what you mean copyright protection is automatical?
sorry "automatic"...meaning that the legal protection arises from the moment you create the work, but registration has additional benefits like statutory damages (need not prove actual damages in a lawsuit). also, you have to register the copyright before filing a copyright infringement lawsuit
so if i post on youtube is that a copyright?
lol i thought those are just pictures you cut out of magazines...they must just hire pretty people there
well technically you would have the copyright when you madethe video, but yes, copyright exists online as well as on paper. of course, the work must be somewhat original & creative to be protected by copyright
many people do not register their works due to the cost & impractical nature sometimes, like when you take thousands of photos etc
but just because it's not registered does not mean you don't have protection/rights...others are still not allowed to use your work without permission
yes all my work are original
so can someone steal my poem if i do a video on you tube?
you lawyers know too much ...what you mean giving them permission to sue?
not to sue, but to display/retain a copy of your work for exaple
just be careful and read the fine print when posting
to see how they handle "user content"
yes ive been reading a lot but its so confusing. the ten commandments are more simple.
so read user content?
lol sorry im modern dumb...not computer savy either. than for more info
thank you so much...and for your time you #1 in my book
thanks, best of luck!
