DIY Copyright & Trademark

Is your brand adequately safeguarded?

Registering for Copyright & Trademark protection isn't merely a procedural step; it's a crucial shield for your business. While unregistered trademarks and copyrights offer some level of protection under common law, registration grants you robust rights. It empowers you to prevent unauthorized use, monetize your intellectual property through licensing, and unlocks various other benefits.

View registration as an investment in the longevity and integrity of your brand, rather than just an operational expense. It's an investment that pays dividends in protecting your creative assets and business identity.

Treat the protection of your work and brand as paramount, akin to safeguarding the lifeblood of your business.

  • Why choose TheLawTog?

Headed by Rachel Brenke, TheLawTog is the only dedicated resource for photographers.  With practicing lawyers, business consultants, CPA, financial planners (and more!) you’ll get information with first-hand experience to help your photography business. 

  • Can I edit the contracts?

Yes! They come as .doc files so you can fill-in-the-blank, remove or add what you need. We provide options and headings to easily allow for editing.

  • Can I use these contracts if not in the US?

TheLawTog®’s contract forms are drafted on general American law-based contract principles and are applicable to many states.  Due to variations in law based on location and business policies, the contracts are editable and easily adaptable. If you are a photographer outside the US, the policies may be implemented for your business, but U.S. Federal Copyright laws and other legal theories may not apply.  For example, in the United States, unless otherwise contracted, the photographer retains copyright ownership of images. However, in other countries, the law may give the copyright ownership to the client and necessitate a provision for transfer.
