Chapter 16: Starting a copyright infringement claim

Hayleigh Bosher


Part 1 described what copyright is, Part 2 was all about what copyright infringement is, now Part 3 explains how copyright is enforced when a rightsholder believes that there has been an infringement. The chapters in this part explain the processes and some of the rules around bringing an action, but I feel the need to reiterate at this point that this does not count as legal advice and will not equip you to bring your own claim. What it does, is helps you to understand what a claim would look like, what some of the rules are and clarifies some of the key aspects of that process. If you plan to bring a claim in court, you should hire a lawyer. This first chapter covers, who is eligible to bring the action in the first place and what happens at the beginning of a copyright infringement action. This is called preliminary action, or pre-action.
