Copyrights



Copyrights are forms of intellectual property that protect original works of authorship; literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works. This includes novels, plays, songs, software, and paintings from the moment they are created and fixed in a tangible form. Copyright law gives the author or owner of a work the right to control reproduction, distribution, adaptation, public performance, public display, and translations into other languages or other media. Copyright protection does not protect ideas. Please read on to find a copyright attorney or lawyer from the Lawyers.comsm attorney directory.

Cyber Squatting Intellectual Property
I purchased many domain names 5 years ago. One of which is someone I know, and over the years they have become famous, at the time, they were not. We are in contact regularly. They have not inquired at all about the domain. As a businessman, I would like to sell the domain at market value. I would ideally like to offer at market value to the person I know, but do not want to be accused of cyber squatting and possibly lose the domain. I am not using the domain name as a website. The person I know who's name is the same as the domain, is not trademarked but used in commerce. By offering to sell them the domain name risky, as it has been nearly 5 years, or would it better to offer it on the open market? It is a first and last name, and probably hundreds or thousands of people have the same name, but are not celebrities.
