Copyrights are an important way to protect intellectual property.
As most people know, copyright protects books, plays, music, movies and many forms of artistic expression. Gehrke & Associates has helped many copyright owners make the most of their artistic expression through securing federal copyrights and licensing of those copyrights.
Often overlooked, however, is that copyright can protect software, building designs, instruction manuals and many other forms of business and technical expression. In addition, copyrights can augment your existing patent and trademark rights.
"Who owns a copyright?" is often a question we hear too late in a collaborative relationship. We can aid you in establishing work made for hire policies and contracts to avoid confusion about who owns a copyright.
