In today’s internet age, some individuals and companies do not think twice before taking your work without permission. Whether it’s a photograph, t-shirt design, or unique ad copy, when someone else takes your work without permission it can severely harm your business.
Gerben IP provides enforcement services that are uniquely tailored to your business’s needs. Depending on your situation, we may recommend a cease-and-desist letter. Sometimes we may reach out to the individual directly. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach and we work with businesses that are budget-conscious to achieve their copyright protection goals.
Copyright Enforcement Tips
- Register your copyrighted works with the United States Copyright Office. If not, you will have limited remedies.
- Consider using an attorney to send cease-and-desist letters and take-down notices. You will be liable for any false notices you send.
- Monitor import websites like AliBaba and Taobao for sources of copyright infringement.
