Copyright Lawyer Service
Would you like to register your copyright? Contact our copyright lawyer and IP lawyer for a consultation. In Canada, you obtain a copyright as soon as your create an original work. Preparing and filing a copyright application and obtaining a copyright registration can be beneficial 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.
- Contact one of our copyright lawyers to discuss your copyright registration questions.
