What is a Copyright?


A copyright is the ownership of your work...aka your artwork, designs, photos, website, book, music, video, or source code. 

If you own your copyright, then you are the only one who can use your work. That means you can stop copycats from stealing it. But, if you don't own your copyright, there's not much you can do to stop copycats from taking your work + claiming it as their own.

So you need to copyright your work asap.

The Copyright Process


Step 1

Copyright Review

Step 2

Copyright Application

We can create and file your copyright application so it's more likely to be approved.

Step 3

Copyright Office

Your application is reviewed by the Copyright Office to ensure it meets the legal requirements.


A Copyright is Perfect for You if...

• You're creating + selling your work

• You want to stop copycats from stealing it

• You're serious about growing your company


What Women Are Saying


"Nicole is our go-to-girl for all things legal! Words do not do her justice. We are so glad we found Sprout Law!"






You can protect your artwork, designs, photos, website, book, music, video, and source code.

How is this different than a trademark?

A copyright protects your artwork and marketing.

A trademark protects your brand name + logo.

We create and file your copyright application. In a few months, your application is reviewed by the Copyright Office. If there are no issues, your copyright will be approved and your work will be protected!

A copyright is an investment in your work. It's nothing compared to how much you can lose in sales when someone steals your work. Copyright applications start at $240+.

How long does the process take?

It takes about a week to create and file your application. Then, it will take a few months to be reviewed.

How do I get started?

We start with a complimentary phone consultation to make sure you're a good fit. When our call is over, you'll receive an online proposal that you can review + accept. When you're ready to get started, you'll receive a short questionnaire to start the copyright process.
