Copyright infringement is the unauthorized use of one or more rights of the owner of a copyrighted work. The Copyright Act provides for numerous remedies for copyright infringement, including injunctive relief, seizure and impoundment, and monetary damages.
It is important to retain a qualified expert that is familiar with both the business and legal aspects of e an opinion on copyright damages, as some of the remedies are dependent upon prerequisite actions. For example, a copyright owner can not receive statutory damages or attorneys fees for copyright infringement unless the copyright was registered within three months of first publication.
