A new challenge is emerging for businesses and individuals concerned about protecting their online intellectual property — preventing their art, writing and music from being pirated online. It is very dismaying, after taking the trouble to record and upload a proprietary item to the Internet, to see it copied and broadcast without permission from YouTube and other popular sites.
DALLAS-FORT WORTH SOCIAL MEDIA ATTORNEY
Norred Law PLLC has worked with a number of businesses to create a secure space online for their intellectual property. Uploaded materials include blogs, podcasts, illustrations and recorded audio and video. We know how to protect material uploaded to Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, Linkedin, Google+ and numerous other specialty sites by taking advantage of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and other federal and state laws.
Online exposure is a good way to increase a brand's visibility, but there is always the risk of having one's material pirated. The best protection is to inform viewers of the protected status of an item, and to warn of the consequences of violating copyright and trademark.
RISE OF THE INTERNET INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAWSUIT
When there is disagreement over who owns a product or brand, social media disputes can develop. Who owns the material: the site owner, the sponsoring organization, or the creative talent who made the site or uploaded the material to the site?
The rules for untangling such disagreements are different from disputes in the brick-and-mortar world. Norred Law PLLC is one of a small group of lawyers versed in both Internet and IP law. Let us help you protect your intellectual property online, and untangle disputes that may arise.
