Get a copyright for your invention, how it work?

11/12/2018   

Inventions come all of the time; some people actually come up with many in their lifetime. However, if you have an invention that may be worth something at some point, even before you have a prototype and certainly before you collaborate with others on it, you should protect your invention to the best of your ability. If it I even possible that an invention of yours might make you a lot of money, you should assume that someone else could make a lot of money if they copy all or part of it or otherwise infringe on your rights to it.

As long as your invention can be described in great detail and is very creative and unique, you can protect that idea with a copyright. A copyright will certify your invention as yours and yours alone and it will set a specific date for its creation. This is important, since it is not enough for you to claim you invented it, you have to prove ownership and priority when it comes time to defend it against infringement. Technically, you have a copyright as soon as you create your invention, but if anyone was to challenge that or attempt to infringe on your rights, you will have to prove first rights of ownership. Among the easiest and most effective ways to  is to register your design and deposit it in a secure environment, like the one we provide at CopyrightWeb.com. Having a copyright is a sure way to protect any invention. It's also important to not wait.

How CopyrightWeb.com Protects Your Invention ?

Again, you will have to make sure the details of your invention are extensive. A single line or short  paragraph describing what your invention does in very general terms probably can't be copyrighted. However, if you create a long narrative explaining all aspects of your invention, you can claim copyright and protect your invention as a whole and most of the elements of it. By registering your invention, even at the early stages, before you even have a prototype or a market, you will establish to everyone that it belongs to you and only you.  By making a copyright deposit of your invention, you create a record of ownership and a date certain when your copyright commences. A copyright deposit establishes priority and serves as incontestable proof of copyright. Your copyright deposit serves as your official witness of your right to your idea.

In the United States, copyright protection is valid for life. When you make a copyright deposit of your invention, it is archived by agents who are under a legal obligation to provide a retention protocol for all deposits in a way that makes your copyright ownership incontestable. What's more, your invention will always be easily retrievable by you, the copyright holder, at any time you need to establish your ownership rights. You will always be able to prove your rights at a moment's notice. Not only that, but when you complete a copyright registration and deposit of your invention through CopyrightWeb.com,  international protection comes standard, meaning that your protection is valid in all 171 countries that have signed on to the Berne Convention.
