Over the past decade, the proliferation of digital content on the Internet and through other media has underscored the importance of copyrights in a company’s assets. This is no longer your grandfather’s copyright realm—or even your older sister’s. Traditional manufacturers and retailers have discovered they own copyrights every bit as valuable as chart-topping songs and blockbuster movies. Some of the more important copyright infringement cases in recent years have involved company websites, online training manuals, proprietary software, and the like.
