Dickinson's intellectual property attorneys provide advice to clients on a wide range of copyright issues in connection with software; visual arts; sound recordings; and literary, musical, dramatic, pictorial and architectural works.  We provide no-nonsense, practical and essential legal advice about protecting the works our clients author or works that are created through work-for-hire agreements under U.S. copyright law.  Our attorneys also provide advice with respect to legal issues clients should bear in mind when engaging in overseas outsourcing in order to adequately protect ownership of or legal interests in copyrightable matter, including software.  We secure and maintain registrations with the U.S. Copyright Office, license and transfer ownership of copyrights, and enforce our clients' rights in those works against infringement by others.
