Copyright Litigation &
Contact The Iwashko Law Firm in Washington, DC
What do you do if you receive a letter from a law firm stating that you have illegally downloaded/distributed music or videos, and have (as a result) been infringing on a copyright holder’s rights? You may not have even known that you were involved in prohibited activities, but a law suit has been filed against you nevertheless.
Alternatively, what if you are surfing the Internet, and you see YOUR work of art being sold on-line without your authorization? Although a part of you may feel flattered that others are distributing your work and showcasing your artistic abilities, you also are aware that others are profiting from your talents.
Although you may have never wanted to be involved in any type of litigation, you now find yourself in a precarious situation where court attendance is inevitable.
Copyright infringement penalties can be awarded by a court based on actual damages or statutory damages, which can range from $200.00 to $150,000.00 per each infringed work of art.
Therefore, whether you are seeking representation as a plaintiff or a defendant in any type of copyright infringement matter, The Iwashko Law Firm can help you with negotiations and case-preparation, so that you experience the outcome that you believe to be proper and just.
