: My website was published on-line about 10 months ago and the rights were not obtained.
: The owner of the company didn't pay for my work, and stole my whole website. Unfortunatelly, I didn't have any contract with him.
: I am going to register my copyright for the website and logo right now.
: Can I forbid the future use for the stolen website after the rights would be obtained?
: Is there is only one option as a claim to the legal Court and shot it down through the court?
: Thanks, Olya
It usually take weeks or months to receive a copyright registration. There is a way to rush a registration if you are going to sue. The is a high official fee. Your copyright notice may hold up but it does lack a feature.
