Should I sue a copyright infringer?

countycourthouseCC0Filing a lawsuit is a major undertaking. Before taking that step, you should consider your other options and get advice from an intellectual property attorney, who can advise you of the strength of your case and help you pursue your rights. A key factor in determining the value of your case will be whether you registered your copyright before the infringement took place or within the three-month grace period after publication, which allows you to recover statutory damages and attorney’s fees.
