Protect the Value of Your Work and Separate Your Fees! by Leslie Burns
- Please, make sure you do the following to protect the value of your work:
- Register your copyrights ASAP after creation, so you can get statutory damages and attorney’s fees in district court if your work is infringed (or higher statutory damages than you could otherwise in the Copyright Claims Board);
- Use separate line items on your estimates and invoices: Usage Licensing Fee and Creative/Shoot Fee;
- Make the Usage Licensing Fee much more than the Creative/Shoot Fee (put your ego on hold and do it); and
- Write clear licenses that both explain and limit the usage appropriately (geography, time, scope, whatever).
