Copyright Infringement

Atlanta Copyright Infringement Attorney

A claim for copyright infringement or a copyright violation is a claim that alleges the unauthorized use of original works of authorship that are covered by copyright in a manner that violates the original copyright owner’s exclusive rights. This “original works of authorship” can be any of the following:

  • (1) literary works
  • (2) musical works, including any accompanying words
  • (3) dramatic works, including any accompanying music
  • (4) pantomimes and choreographic works
  • (5) pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works
  • (6) motion pictures and other audiovisual works
  • (7) sound recordings
  • (8) architectural works

You do not have to have your original work registered with the any government agency to have a copyright claim. Copyright is secured automatically when the work is created. A work is “created” when it is fixed or recorded for the first time. If you have a copyright claim unregistered or registered with either the federal government (United States Copyright office) or with the state of Georgia (Secretary of State), and your copyright is being violated then you have important legal rights that could be protected. J. Stephen Mixon, Esq. of Millar and Mixon, LLC has experience protecting your business copyrights and/or defending company’s who are being sued for copyright infringement.
