Enriching Life Through Innovative Ideas SM

Why are copyrights important in today’s market?

As a business owner in California, it doesn’t matter if you are an up-and-coming business star, a well-established franchise, or a proud owner of a mom-and-pop shop. Intellectual property – and how you protect it – will have an impact on your success today, tomorrow, and well into the future. We at Wang Intellectual Property dedicate our time to helping you achieve the best future your business or brand can have, starting with copyrights.

Why exactly are copyrights so important? Simply put, they allow you to protect your unique products, processes, and creations in a market that frankly has a lot of theft going on. With the advent of the internet, everything from trade secrets to innovative ideas for new products can spread to hundreds of thousands of people with a single click of a button. By registering and enforcing a copyright, you are adding an extra layer of security to the future of your business.

Copyright enforcement is up to the author. However, it can be enforced through litigation or negotiation. Many people prefer opting for negotiation first, and the outcome can be surprisingly beneficial for all parties. However, there are instances where litigation may be the best – or only – option available to you.

No matter what sort of work you do, it is crucial to protect your intellectual property in order to secure a healthy future for your business. You may wish to contact our experienced attorneys if you have any other questions or concerns regarding copyright, related laws, or any other possible issues with intellectual property.
