Have you protected your images?
Copyright registration is a very inexpensive yet super valuable protection for your images, blogs, and other intellectual property. Without registration, copyright protection is greatly lacking.
WITH registration, you have a stronger legal argument, statutory damage amounts and potential attorneys fees for infringement actions.
Registration is a standard cost-of-doing-business and is one that is so easy and inexpensive that it truly is not worth NOT doing.
Think of it this way, it’s not a matter of IF your images or text gets ripped off. It is when. With the wide-spread internet use and lack of common copyright knowledge, companies are ripping off work and using in marketing.
What does this mean for you?
Compensation for use of your images. Education on copyright law for others.
But in order for you to have the stronger legal argument, you need registration.
