Have you ever seen how right before a commercial during a sport’s broadcast a notification comes on telling the viewer not to reproduce the broadcast? The purpose isn’t to bore you, rather, the broadcaster is protecting their show using copyrights.

Copyrights protect the expression of an idea that is fixed in a tangible medium. From photos, to paintings, to music, copyrights protect just about every unique and original expression of creativity. They touch every product we own from the design of the phones in our pockets to the apps we use on them.

As soon as an expressive work is created, the designer has copyrights in that work. Federally registering an expressive work greatly expands the protections given to its creator and is relatively inexpensive.

Whether you are an individual or a company, a copyright is a great way to protect your creative works.
