An artist’s or a celebrity’s artwork(s) and brand name are incredibly valuable assets. As an artist or celebrity, if you have proper brand protection, then you have the opportunity to maximize your earning potential. Brand protection ensures that others do not steal your artwork or trade on your name or brand. Brand theft can cause a severe financial and emotional impact.
Carbon Law Group can help you maximize your earning potential and protect your artwork and brand name with royalty agreements, copyright registration, trademark registration, and general artist representation.
A royalty agreement is a licensing agreement that can potentially be a lucrative source of income. What is your intellectual property, and how much is your intellectual property worth? Licensing can help you extract value and access markets you perhaps never knew existed. Carbon Law Group can craft an agreement that maximizes your earning potential, while protecting your intellectual property.
Copyright law can protect your original, tangible work of authorship. Copyright law protects literary works; musical works, including any accompanying works; dramatic works, including any accompanying music; pantomimes and choreographic works; pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works; motion pictures and other audiovisual works; sound recordings; and architectural works. Your work is inherently valuable. Carbon Law Group will guide you through registering your copyright.
Celebrities with household names and a brand could benefit from trademarking their name. Not every name can be trademarked, but if your name has acquired a secondary meaning, then you could register your name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Trademarking is a great way to protect your brand and assess significant damages if someone tries to steal your name or likeness.
Finally, contracts govern working conditions and compensation for musicians, performers, actors, writers, and content creators. A contract can be the difference between feast or famine. This is why a qualified attorney is an integral part of any artist’s management team. As that attorney, Carbon Law Group can help you secure your artistic growth and development.
