Get help finding the Right Intellectual Property Lawyer for your case
Copyright violations occur when a party other than the author or copyright holder attempts to use, sell, distribute or reproduce copyrighted material. A copyright is meant to protect original material from being stolen or used without permission. The copyright holder has the exclusive right to own, sell, perform or reproduce the material or works. If anyone else uses, sells or reproduces the material without authorization from the owner, they are committing an illegal act of copyright violation. Copyright violation of electronic media is often referred to as piracy.
Federal copyright laws put forth by the USPTO help protect against copyright violations. Thus, any copyright violation is subject to copyright litigation. If someone attempts to violate copyright law, they may face a lawsuit and an injunction. If found guilty of copyright violation, the person or party may have to pay damages, compensation, and other reimbursements to the original copyright holder.
If your copyrighted material is being sold, reproduced or distributed without your permission, an intellectual property lawyer can help you. Copyright violations are common, especially with ease of the internet.

An attorney will also help you gather witnesses and evidence to present a solid case in court.
