As an attorney that focuses on 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 workshop for you- the creative entrepreneur.
If You’ve Ever Thought...
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, highlighting key portions of the application and showing you where to find additional resources.
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!
It’s Your Work, Protect It
Like it or not, when you’re sharing 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 content. Reality is, when you fail to register the copyright in 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.
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.
