If you are a content creator, whether a large company or an individual, you spend a great deal of time, energy and expense creating your works.
However, ensuring that your creations work as hard for you as you did to create them is a very different matter. Though piracy on the Internet is a serious issue that must be dealt with, you don’t wish to be seen as a bully, which can damage your reputation and harm your core business.

Through a variety of vendors and technology partners, CopyByte is able to help track a wide variety of content including text, images, audio and video as it is passed around on the Web. This can be used either for the purpose of audience tracking or to assist with enforcement.
Though CopyByte is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice, CopyByte can act as an agent on your company’s behalf and help secure the removal of infringements on the Web. CopyByte handles all correspondence and can do so either on a case-by-case basis or as part of a recurring project.
CopyByte can also work with either your attorneys or our partnered attorneys to help deal with cases that require litigation and ensure that your rights are enforced properly.
Though registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office is not a requirement for your work to enjoy copyright protection, it is a requirement to register your work in a timely fashion to take advantage of all of remedies available under U.S. law. including the ability to pursue legal action and collect statutory damages.
However, copyright registration can be a long, tedious and intimidating process.
CopyByte can register your works on your behalf and handle all correspondence with the Copyright Office. In short, you can get back to creating new content, while resting comfortably that your works are fully protected.
