If you’ve been accused of criminal copyright infringement, you need a lawyer who will fight aggressively on your behalf. Copyright infringement charges can result in serious penalties like jail time, fines, and a criminal record. An aggressive defense lawyer is essential to protect your rights and avoid these consequences.
Criminal copyright infringement is willfully infringing a copyright for commercial gain or personal financial benefit . This means illegally reproducing, distributing, or selling a copyrighted work. Examples include:
Criminal charges are pressed when the infringement is considered serious enough to warrant felony status. This depends on the retail value of the infringed works and whether you’ve been convicted before. Penalties can include up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 in fines for a first offense .
Fighting criminal copyright charges takes an aggressive lawyer. Here’s why:
Aggressive defense lawyers use every legal strategy to get charges reduced or dismissed. Here are some of their most effective tactics:
A copyright must be properly registered to be enforced criminally . An aggressive lawyer digs into the copyright’s registration history looking for mistakes. Even small errors like incorrect dates can invalidate the copyright. This can knock out the prosecution’s entire case.
Aggressive lawyers don’t take infringement claims at face value. They force prosecutors to prove substantial similarity between your work and the original beyond a reasonable doubt. Subtle differences in fonts, formatting, or images could create doubt in the jury’s mind. Your lawyer’s goal is making the infringement claim seem flimsy.
Fair use allows using copyrighted material for things like commentary, criticism, news reporting or education . There are four factors judges consider in determining fair use. An aggressive lawyer argues these creatively to show your use was protected.
Even if they can’t beat the charges entirely, aggressive lawyers leverage weaknesses to negotiate plea bargains. They work relentlessly to get prosecutors to drop or reduce charges to mere misdemeanors. This avoids felony convictions and limits fines and jail time.
