If you find that someone has infringed on your copyright interest in something that you have written, has stolen one or another (or several) or your articles, your immediate reaction likely may be that you need to seek legal assistance. As a result, you may balk at taking any action against the person who has stolen your copy because you do not believe that you can afford a lawyer.
The reality is that when it comes to protecting your copyright interest you simply do not need the assistance of an attorney. Through this article you are presented with three reasons why you do not need a lawyer to protect your copyright in something that you have written.
You do not need a lawyer to perfect your copyright interest in the first instance. Your copyright interest attaches to anything that you have written the moment you have written a substantial portion of that written work - or, indeed, the moment you have taken a significant step towards the creation of that work.
You do not need a lawyer to file an application for a copyright. While you can file your copyright interest with the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. , such a filing is not necessary in order for your interest to exist. Moreover, even if you desire to make such a filing, you do not need at attorney to accomplish this task.
Finally, if someone violates your copyright interest, on your initiative and without the need for a lawyer, you can make demand against that person to cease and desist and to compensate you for the misuse and misappropriation of your copyrighted materials.
