Online Copyright Infringements

In the online world, creators of intellectual property are fighting two battles.

The first is with fans who want to share content with others or who want to ‘riff’ on an artist’s work by modifying it. Those fans may or may not know they are violating a copyright. Often the first step in protecting your art from misappropriation is to inform people of its protected status and to warn of the consequences of violating copyright law.

The second battle is with underground websites and file sharing networks like BitTorrent who wish to pirate the works of others. This is a much bigger problem and much harder to fight. The victims of this kind of online infringement are typically companies that have copyrighted music, developed gaming software, or produced and distributed movies and videos. Online piracy networks usually operate across national jurisdictions, making it much harder to bring them to justice.

Dallas-Fort Worth social media attorney Warren Norred has been at the forefront of social media infringement and misappropriation cases. Attorney Norred advises clients on ways they can use the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other federal and state laws to protect material on Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, LinkedIn, Google+, and other websites.

Content creators on social media sites like YouTube have a unique brand identity, innovative ideas, and original content that needs protecting. A social media trademark is an ideal way to safeguard your material while maintaining your brand.

Who Owns Creative Social Media Content?

When material is posted to or shared on a website, who owns that material? The creative talent who made the material? The owner of the website where it is posted?

Suppose that material was made by one artist and then modified (or not modified) by another person before being uploaded to a website. Who is responsible for the infringement of intellectual property rights? Is it the website owner? The poster?

Internet law is a unique field of law that few firms have entered into. The rules for untangling such disagreements are very different from disputes in the brick-and-mortar world. Norred Law is experienced in handling intellectual property disputes involving social media platforms and other online properties.

Reputation Management, Online Libel, & Defamation

Reputation management is a growing part of our law practice. Though not strictly considered an intellectual property issue, a person’s reputation can be viewed as property that can be damaged.

Personal attacks are on the upswing and so are lawsuits regarding defamation (which includes both libel and slander) and attacks on one’s reputation or the reputation of a business. At Norred Law, we assist artists and other social media users whose reputations have been unfairly attacked or diminished.

If you have been the victim of copyright infringement or misappropriation of your creative work online, call Norred Law at (817) 500-9433 to learn more about your options for legal action.
