If you answered YES to any of the questions above, I'm about to provide you with a solution that you can use on your own, that'll help you chase your dreams, and get that bag!

Lissssssten! I know you create content. We all do. There’s absolutely no way around it. Especially as a business owner.

You’re literally creating content all day – photography, social media posts, workbooks, planners, artwork, blogs, newsletter – and then you’re putting it out there on internet for the world to see, capture, download…and steal – unless you protect it with a federal copyright registration!

What Do Copyrights Protect?

Copyright protects works of art fixed in a tangible medium expression. In laymen's terms-- any work of art that you create, once it is in a form that can be seen, touched, and felt (either directly or with the assistance of a machine or device) may be subject to copyright protection.

Protect the Brand. Build the Legacy.

I’ve dedicated my career to helping minority business owners build wealth they can pass on to their children. In my experience, I've seen too many hard-working business owners struggle with legal cases and have their creations stolen because they chose not to protect it first.


While copyright protection exists at the moment of fixation – meaning once the work becomes tangible, obtaining federal copyright protection is where you want to be. Benefits of federal registration include:


In the end, if you’re really serious about growing and protecting your business and creations, you’ll end up hiring someone like me to correct your mistakes and get you the protection your business deserves.


Here’s how my DIY Copyrights Workshop benefits your brand:

  • OWNERSHIP: Presumption of ownership of the protected works

  • PROTECTION:  Nationwide protection across all the states and may prohibit the importation of counterfeit goods bearing your mark 

  • NOTICE TO PUBLIC: Puts general public on notice that you are the owner of a certain works

  • RIGHTS: The right to enforce your rights by filing civil suits or criminal charges against known infringers; eligibility for statutory damages, attorney fees, and costs of lawsuit

Now ask yourself, would you want to miss out on all of these benefits? You can trust Lawyer Mommy to help you register your entity and get your business started the right way!
