Holland & Hart’s IP team appreciates that copyright law often provides a cornerstone to our clients' intellectual property portfolios.

Copyright law is frequently used as a sword in order to obtain competitive advantage in a particular industry, monetary payments from alleged infringers, and other claimed relief apart from simply preventing a work from being copied. Whether representing our client’s copyrighted works or defending against allegations of infringement by others, we realize that the Internet and other technologies are constantly increasing the speed and ease within which copyrighted works can be used, adapted, reproduced, and distributed. Our attorneys stay up-to-date on the rapidly changing digital media landscape and changes being made to U.S. and foreign copyright laws in reaction to technological advances. We are well prepared to assist clients in defending against or protecting their "new media" creations. We are also well-versed in defending and protecting more traditional creative works and understand the boundaries governing use of existing copyrighted materials.

Our team provides copyright counseling covering both traditional and digital media, including:

Securing Copyright Registrations
We regularly advise and guide our clients on the advantages of copyright registration, and assist with preparing applications for registration. We have secured copyright registrations for materials ranging from a simple brochure to software program source code. We have also secured copyright registrations for literary, musical, dramatic, multimedia, graphic, and web-based works. Once a copyright registration is obtained, we work with our clients to monitor their rights and to enforce those rights against unauthorized use.
