: Apparently this is common- my boyfriend produced music and he used a poorman's copyright. He recently heard the song on a famous DJ's hip-hop album. He did not give permission or was notified before its use- he found out from a friend who heard it. Where does he go from here? Does the poorman's copyright stand up in court?
Elaine's Workshop® was built to meet situations like this. You need an Intellectual Property lawyer you can trust. A Poor Man's copyright can cost more in losses than a registered copyright.
