Copyright is one of the forms of intellectual property rights protected by U.S. law. This protection is generally issued for unique written materials such as a book, poem or article. Authors applied for a legal protection in order to preserve their financial and publication rights accruing from their work. The Library of Congress preserves a copy of each item for which a right has been issued in the U.S. A skilled lawyer can assist a person and successfully applying for a copyright and bringing an infringement lawsuit.
