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.

Here is a cliff notes for you:
I am a lawyer, but I’m not your lawyer!
While TheLawTog strives to keep its legal contract templates current, accurate and up-to-date, TheLawTog cannot guarantee that all the information available at thelawtog.com (including related domains and subdomains) (the “Sites’), or information provided in templates and products obtained from TheLawTog, is current at all times or in all areas. TheLawTog provides general documents we hope will be helpful to those of you who have chosen to complete your own legal documents. While TheLawTog makes an effort to keep our legal documents current and updated, because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, TheLawTog can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction. Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, TheLawTog encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.
Nothing contained in the Sites or available through the products, materials and services of TheLawTog is intended to form an attorney-client relationship. Your interaction with TheLawTog in any capacity does not form such a relationship. TheLawTog’s performance of services related to those offered through the Sites, information provided on the Sites, and products sold through the Sites likewise does not create an attorney-client relationship in any particular circumstance.
In addition, from time to time, TheLawTog may introduce you to licensed attorneys through various referral methods. However, at no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with TheLawTog due to these complimentary services, for which TheLawTog does not take any fee or engage in any profit-sharing. Whether or not you choose to pursue such referral or related legal services is entirely your decision and is provided by TheLawTog only as a courtesy.
Finally, The Law Tog does not intend to create any attorney-client relationship and your use of TheLawTog’s Sites, templates and other services, products and resources does not create an attorney-client relationship.
