Can Protect Your Rights Against Copyright Violations
Copyright Lawyers

Sanders Law Group

Our practice is dedicated to protecting those whose copyrights have been violated and often lack the resources to protect themselves. We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we don’t get paid unless and until you get paid.

Your Rights Under Copyright Laws

Your Copyright Rights

As the creator of an original work, whether a photograph, illustration, song, text or other work, your copyright rights are created the moment you create your work.

Get Paid for Your Work

When your rights are violated by a publishing company – “or other businesses”, whether intentionally or negligently, you have rights. We work to ensure you are properly paid pursuant to federal copyright laws.

We Will Litigate Your Copyright Claim to Protect Your Rights

While most cases reach a settlement, license or other resolution, we are not afraid to litigate on your behalf. Big businesses know this, and should take your claim seriously.

Copyright Laws Protect Your Right to be Paid for Your Work

Here in the United States, creators of original works, such as photographers, artists, musicians, writers and more are entitled to copyright protection for their original work.

Many professionals, particularly photographers and videographers license their work to news outlets and other companies. When your work is illegally copied from that site and republished by another business, you have your rights.

We work with you and can assist you with the filing of a federal copyright application. If filed timely, this may entitle you to statutory damages.

We then pursue your claims and help achieve a favorable result for you, to get you paid for your hard work.

Let Our Copyright Attorneys Protect Your Rights

Our lawyers are passionate about protecting those whose copyrights have been violated. Whether a national television network, an online news outlet or other company, we fight for you.

We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we get a part of the recovery when we succeed. You do not pay by the hour for our services, which is how most firms handle these cases.

With our approach, the struggling photographer, videographer, writer, artist or other creator of copyright works can have the law on their side.
