Copyright Infringement

A copyright protects the expression of ideas and is a valuable intellectual property right and asset. A copyright infringement action requires a plaintiff to prove (1) ownership of a valid copyright, and (2) actionable copying by the defendant of constituent elements of the work that are original. Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Tel. Serv. Co., 499 U.S. 340, 361, 111 S.Ct. 1282, 113 L.Ed.2d 358 (1991). The following original works may be protected by our copyright laws:

  • Websites
