What We Do
Your creative expression may be your most valuable asset. Whether you are a songwriter, author, visual artist, advertising agency creative, or performing artist, copyright protection is necessary to successful career management.
A copyright is a property right which protects you from unauthorized reproduction or use of your work. You should control how and by whom your work is used. Obtain professional advice from us as to your right to prevent others from exploiting your creative expression.
Merchandising your band’s name, company logo, or product’s trademark is an excellent source of income. Many performers make as much from the sale of licensed products as they do from performing, and your logo can speak well for you in a variety of venues.
You have likely spent considerable time and effort in building an image. Don’t let others capitalize on you image at your expense. We can ensure that you have trademark protection under both Federal and State laws.
Royalties for musical compositions are divided between the composer and the publisher. The composer is the individual who writes the music and lyrics, and the publisher is a party that co-owns the music in its commercial capacity. If the music is released through a record label, the label is in most cases the publisher.
Songwriters, composers and artists receive payment when their compositions and performances are used commercially. The royalties received by musicians and publishing companies are one of the most valuable sources of revenue in the music industry.
