Copyright

Copyright protects original work of authorship. The focus is the protection of artistic expression. DTL assists individual artists or corporations in obtaining copyright protection for their literary, musical, dramatic sound recordings, architectural and other artistic works, such as pantomimes and choreographic works, pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works, motion pictures and other audiovisual works.

Our attorneys can assist you in identifying whether your work is copyrightable and obtain registrations.

Licensing and Distribution Agreements

Trademark owners often rely on third parties to establish and maintain a commercial presence in certain markets. It is also a means to monetize your brand. Often, these arrangements are sealed with a hand shake and not reduced to writing for various reasons. A trademark owner must establish and define the rights and obligations of the resulting business relation either through a license or a distribution agreement.

DTL will draft or review the necessary documentation to strengthen your position and enable you to establish a solid foundation for your joint ventures with other market participants.
