The Association of Media Photographers recently asked me to write an article for its members explaining statutory damages in copyright litigation. I wrote the article, published in the spring 2010 ASMP Bulletin, to give copyright holders a basic understanding of what statutory damages are, how copyright holders qualify for statutory damages through registration of their copyrighted works and how courts and juries calculate these damages. If your work has been infringed and you are trying to determine the amount of statutory damages you may be entitled to, you may find the article useful. To download the published article, click here.
