What Is Copyright?

Copyright is the active protection of a created piece of written work from use by outside, unauthorized parties. Costa Rica offers such copyright protection and Meléndez & Bonilla is proud to offer its experience and expertise in all copyright dealings in the country. Just as trademarks and other pieces of intellectual property, your written works are extremely valuable and when used in Costa Rica, deserve to be protected from others at all times.

Costa Rican law dictates that while copyright does not have to be explicitly asked for, it is always advisable to do so for important works. Upon being granted copyright protection, a piece of written work is protected for the life of the author plus 70 years. That kind of protection can ensure decades of fair use for you and your family members for all of your important works.

Let Meléndez & Bonilla aid and assist you by offering the strong, local voice that has helped so many people rest easy with their most important works protected.
