Your business's day to day operations give rise to all kinds of legal questions about copyright. If you have creative works, you may want to register copyrights to protect them against infringement. If someone is infringing on your work or if someone has accused you of infringing on their work, a lawyer can advise you about the best course of action and answer all your legal questions about copyright. No matter what your legal question about copyright, a lawyer will generally need to know the nature of the creative work and whether it has been published. In the case of infringement, a lawyer will want to ascertain whether the usage falls under one of the “fair use” exceptions.
