Copy It Right!
Your Creative Work Has Rights & It’s Time You Made Sure It’s Protected
IF YOUR WORK GOES VIRAL, YOU SHOULD GET ALL OF THE CREDIT YOU DESERVE!
It's been said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and while that may be true for some, I’d be willing to bet the bank that for you-- the small business owner, solopreneur and creative-- imitation is an absolute nightmare!
You've worked entirely too hard to build a reputable and valuable brand for someone to simply come and take what rightfully belongs to you.
It’s Your Work, Protect It
Like it or not, when you’re sharing your your creative work with the public it’s bound to capture attention. And while that attention mostly attracts an audience that has admiration and respect for your work, unfortunately there are some people who will attempt to copy your ideas. Reality is, when you fail to copyright your work you’re opening the door to intruders who will steal your ideas and concepts with no remorse. Trust me when I tell you, this is not a place where you want to find yourself as a business owner.
What Is The Copy It Right! DIY Copyright Workshop?
The Copy It Right! DIY Copyright Workshop is a week-long, intensive digital workshop that takes you step-by-step through the copyrighting process from start to finish.

Who Is This Workshop For?
Are you a digital creator and/or entrepreneur? If you answered “Yes” then you can’t afford to miss this workshop.
As an attorney that specializes in copyright, trademark, and business law, I’ve seen firsthand the financial and creative devastation that comes when you’re not legally protecting your words and creations, which is precisely why I created this challenge for you- the creative entrepreneur.
If You’ve Ever Thought
- That filing a copyright will break the budget and require an attorney.
- The process for filing a copyright is entirely too difficult.
- No one one is going to “steal” your work.
- You can prove that you are the sole creator.
Not only will this workshop put all the myths and speculation around the copyright process to rest, but it will help you complete the process with ease and have your works legally protected.
Together We Will:
I don’t just walk you through the process of filing your own copyright, I educate you about your legal rights, how to protect your ideas as well as how to successfully resolve deficiencies that may occur during the registration process.
Can’t quite figure out what to have copywritten? No worries, I’m helping you save time and money by showing you how to properly categorize and prioritize your work for registration and protection.
During this recorded section of the workshop, I walk you through the entire registration process using the U.S. Copyright Office website.
Are You Ready To Copy It Right?
With all the valuable info packed in this workshop, you’ll be a copyrighting pro with the sense of security that no one can take claim to your efforts. Now, in life is all about options so I developed two ways for you to benefit from the workshop. Both budget friendly, the DIY portion of the workshop provides you with detailed video modules, worksheets and step-by-step instructions to complete the copyright process on your own -which is great for the person who just needs a few simple instructions.
What’s amazing about the DWY option, is that it pairs you with me (an attorney) to help answer any complicated or remaining questions you may have. In addition, working together we’ll discuss possible infringement scenarios and find solutions to any deficiencies that may stall your registration.
The beauty of copyright law is that it protects you and provides you the opportunity to honor one another.
Let's Copy It Right!
Hi, I’m Tyra Hughley Smith, principal attorney and founder of Hughley Smith Law. For the last 11+ years, I have been protecting small business owners with a combination of intellectual property and business/contract protection. In fact, I started my career working in-house for a small business and making sure they were covered legally. That's been my role since the start of my career: working as general counsel (both in house and as outside counsel) for small business owners and creatives to ensure that they are protecting their businesses from a legal perspective. Because what's the point of building a 6 or 7-figure business if you aren't going to protect it?
When it comes to the law, I’m passionate about equipping business owners with the tools they need to thrive. Building a strong foundation is critical for small business owners, and having access to an attorney to guide you through the ins and outs of your concerns will give you the comfort you need to take your business to the next level.
Through this course, my goal is to provide trusted legal insights to business owners who want to ensure that they are operating correctly and in their best interest, along with that of their business. This is why I refer to myself as a "business protection" attorney.
