Kohel Haver answers the question, "When to contact a lawyer about copyright infringement?"
- [Instructor] In context of copyright, you always have…to consider when to contact a lawyer.…Thankfully, in the United States,…our copyright laws are such that we can usually respond…to most copyright infringements without the need…of hiring a lawyer, but at some times,…as you saw in my real-world response examples,…infringers don't always respond…to our legal demands regarding copyright…and that's when you better call Saul or, in my case,…Kohel.…
So, my next question for Kohel Haver is an obvious one.…When should a person contact a copyright attorney?…Here's his response.…- [Kohel] If you've registered your copyright…and I'm assuming that you have, then when you need…to enforce your work and either you're frustrated,…because you can't get the infringer,…the person that's taking your work without permission,…to comply with your demands.…You've sent them a letter, saying, "Pay me for that."…You've sent them a cease and desist, saying stop doing it.…
That's when you want to get a hold of a lawyer.…You have a total of three years to enforce your copyright…
