Copyrights and Trademarks

If you want to register a copyright or trademark or if you have a dispute regarding an already registered copyright or trademark, the Tampa intellectual property lawyers at Lieser Skaff Alexander can help.


Our Tampa Bay intellectual property attorneys can help you with copyright applications and the filing of a suit in the case of copyright infringement.

Registering your copyright in a timely manner is essential if the need for litigation as a result of infringement ever arises. A copyright protects the author of original work from the copying or commercially exploiting of their work without permission. Copyright creates a public record of the work.

Copyrights can be obtained for many types of original work including:

  • Music and lyrics
  • Literary books, poems and articles
  • Architecture
  • Choreography
  • Photographs
  • Movies
  • Video
  • Sculptures
  • Paintings
  • Computer Software

The length of time for a copyright varies. The copyright will be in place for the lifetime of the author and for a number of years after depending on the circumstances of authorship.

The Tampa lawyers at our firm can help you register your copyright, understand copyright law and solve a dispute should one arise.


At Lieser Skaff Alexander we can help you with the registration of your trademark and with solving any disputes regarding infringement if it occurs.

A trademark is used to uniquely identify products or services from a particular company. A trademark can be a symbol, word or words, design or phrase or combination thereof. Some famous trademarks include those for McDonalds, Jello, Apple and Pepsi.

There are both state and federal laws regarding the use of trademarks that your lawyer can help you understand. For instance, at the state level, the owner of a trademark is the first to use it.

Our Tampa intellectual property can perform trademark clearance searches to determine the availability of your trademark and the likelihood of approval for use. We provide assistance for disputes regarding infringement and litigation if the need arises.

Whatever your needs, our experienced business and intellectual property lawyers can help you understand and navigate all areas of copyright and trademark law.

To schedule your initial case evaluation, please feel free to contact our Tampa Bay Copyright and Trademark Attorneys today.
