Did you know that Copyright protection is an automatic legal right?
Protection attaches as soon as you create the work 🎨 and applies to both published and unpublished works.
Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about copyright laws and how to go about protecting photos and other artistic creations.
Registering your copyright with the US Copyright Office is the best way to fully protect your work. Even though an automatic right is created, formally registering your copyright with the US Copyright Office is a requirement to bringing an infringement action and allows you to recover statutory damages (a.k.a a lot of 💰).
I’ll be covering copyright protection in more depth in the next few weeks.

Failing to ask for what we need, want and deserve is something a lot of us women have a habit of doing.
Research shows that only 30% of women ask for a higher salary when negotiating a new salary, versus 46% of men. Now add to that being a creative professional. Unfortunately, many creatives under charge for their services and end up short-changing themselves.
These conversations are critical not only to advance ourselves and our businesses, but to advance our communities. In order to see change, we have to stop thinking small and be willing to fight for better pay and equality.

New Blog Post‼️: When I recently reached out to one of my favorite influencers and dear friends, she explained to me the fact that most influencers feel lost when it comes to reviewing brand contracts and negotiating terms that are favorable to them.
After reviewing a music licensing deal for another client, I realized that contract negotiation is a BIG issue not only for influencers, but for all creatives.

"To Thine own Self Be True” - Shakespeare.
These were the words that my former boss echoed after I told him that I was resigning from the firm because I realized that I was not passionate about the work.
For months, I had felt as if I was being called toward a more creative path, but I wasn’t sure what that path was. I had been blogging for a number of years and frequently dreamed about combining my love of writing, travel, and all things creative with the practice of law.
I knew that my creative side had to be at the forefront of my life and embedded in my career. I soon realized that I could use my law degree to help other creatives protect their passions and businesses through the areas of Intellectual Property, Contract, and Business Law.
The launch of Zara Watson Law: a firm dedicated to representing creative entrepreneurs (coaches, fashion brands, photographers, writers, musicians, bloggers, doctors, makeup artists, calligraphers - and all creatives) has allowed me to help businesses owners protect their brands and businesses.
