Copyright Lawyer Registration Service
Need a Copyright? Contact our Copyright lawyers for your no-obligation consultation. In Canada, you obtain a copyright as soon as your create an original work. It is sometimes desired to have a registered copyright for the following reasons:
- Copyright Registration creates a rebuttable presumption that the work is owned by you and copyright exists in such work. The earlier the registration, the more weight a Court may give to such registration for the purpose of copyright litigation.
- Copyright registration is particularly important for assignees of a copyright. In a case where a copyright is assigned to a party ("first assignee"), and subsequently assigned to another party ("second assignee"), issues may arise for the first assignee if the second assignee seeks copyright registration. It is highly recommended for an assignee to seek registration.
