© 2012 Lathrop & Gage LLP Copyright Infringement When does copyright protection attach to a work? – Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in a fixed form – No need to register or take action
© 2012 Lathrop & Gage LLP Copyright Infringement Copyright owner has five basic exclusive rights: – right to reproduce (copy) the work – right to make derivative works (adapt) based on the original; – right to distribute (by sale, license, rental, etc.) to the public copies of the work – right to perform the work publicly – right to display the work publicly
© 2012 Lathrop & Gage LLP Copyright Infringement How long does copyright last? – For works created after January 1, 1978: the term is life of the author (or last surviving author in case of a joint work) plus 70 years; or In case of a work made for hire, 95 years from first publication or 120 years from date of creation, whichever is shorter – For works created before January 1, 1978: Generally, for works published between 1923 and December 31, 1977, the duration is a first term of 28 years and a renewal term of 67 years for a total of 95 years. But it can get complicated (notice, registration issues) – call the lawyer!
© 2012 Lathrop & Gage LLP Copyright Infringement Definition of infringement is simple – it is any violation of one or more of the aforementioned exclusive rights “Strict Liability” scheme: no state of mind requirement for infringement – Lack of intent may be relevant to reducing damages, but is no defense to liability
