Creative works come in the form of music, art, literature, etc. such as novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright exists to protect these forms of intellectual property. It also gives the owner the rights to:
Reproduce the work
Prepare derivative works
Distribute copies of the work by sale, lease, or other transfer of ownership
Perform and display the work publicly
In most countries, copyright laws will protect creative works as soon as they are created. However, it is recommended to register the work to the Copyright Office so it would be on the public record and have a certificate of registration. In case someone tries to steal your work, the said record would be great evidence for the lawyer to use in litigation.
There are two main types of copyright lawyers: the ones who focus on the application process and the others who would focus on infringement issues which will represent you when someone is using your work without permission, especially for financial gain. So, if your intellectual property is being used without your consent, hiring a copyright lawyer would be the best course of action.
