When you work hard to create unique ideas—whether they are in the form of a song or software code—a copyright prosecution attorney can help you protect them (and maybe even earn money from them) by copyrighting your material. Copyright application attorneys know the process involved in creating a new copyright and can advise you about the need for notice of your copyright claim and what form to use, and whether you should formally register your copyright. Copyright is the best protection your unique ideas can get and it pays to be thorough.
