Description: New York, New York intellectual property lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a copyright infringement theory.

"Copyright infringement is the unauthorized use of copyrighted material. This can include things like copying, distributing, or performing copyrighted works without permission from the copyright holder.

Copyright infringement is a violation of the copyright holder's exclusive rights. These rights include the right to reproduce the work, the right to distribute the work, the right to perform the work, and the right to create derivative works.

Copyright infringement can be a civil or criminal offense. In civil cases, the copyright holder can sue the infringer for damages. The damages can include the profits that the infringer made from the infringement, the losses that the copyright holder suffered as a result of the infringement, and the costs of bringing the lawsuit.

In criminal cases, the infringer can be fined or imprisoned. The penalties for copyright infringement can vary depending on the severity of the offense.

Here are some examples of copyright infringement:

Copying and distributing copyrighted music without permission.
Uploading copyrighted movies to a file-sharing website.
Selling counterfeit goods that infringe on a trademark.
Creating a derivative work of a copyrighted work without permission.

If you believe that your copyright has been infringed, you should speak with an attorney to discuss your legal options. An attorney can help you determine if you have a case and can help you file a lawsuit, if necessary.

Here are some things to keep in mind about copyright infringement:

Copyright infringement is a serious offense. It can result in civil and criminal penalties.
Not all uses of copyrighted material are infringements. For example, fair use allows for the use of copyrighted material for certain purposes, such as criticism, commentary, news reporting, and scholarship.
If you are unsure whether your use of copyrighted material is infringing, you should speak with an attorney.
There are a number of resources available to help you protect your copyrights. These resources include the U.S. Copyright Office and the Copyright Alliance."
