+ National and International Copyright Counseling, Clearance, Prosecution & Registration
We regularly advise clients on protecting their rights in any number of media, including textual, visual, audio-visual, musical, and computer software works in the United States and around the world to the fullest extent permitted by law. Our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of various forms of national and international protections for literary and artistic works, such as the protection of droit moral and integrity rights in Europe, requirements for the provision of such rights under the Berne Convention, and the extent of protection of those rights in the United States. Ladas & Parry renders opinions on clients’ rights, on the possibility their work might infringe on others’ rights, and on how best to maximize the protections available at law. We conduct various types of clearance searches, including fashion design clearance, provide clients with opinion letters, prepare applications for copyright registrations, as well as handle the transfer and assignment of copyrights.
