Los Angeles Royalty Dispute Attorneys
We’re Here to Protect Your Intellectual Property and Rightful Royalties
After pouring yourself into a creative project, whether it’s music, a television show, or any other media, part of your rewards for finishing is seeing your work enjoyed and shared by others. Then, of course, there’s the monetary rewards—important to anyone trying to sustain a life in Los Angeles, especially those who work in a volatile and project-based industry. Royalties are both an important source of income and your right as the creator of valuable intellectual property. If you’re not being paid what you owe, we can help you file a claim.
Our attorneys at Robins Cloud LLP are tough litigators who can handle complex civil cases with ease. Our team has the dedication and resources to fight for you, even against the biggest studios and names. As a creator, you deserve to have your rights protected and your work respected. If you are being denied the royalties you’re owed, we urge you to reach out to our Los Angeles team as soon as possible. We don’t want to let a dishonest corporation deprive you of what you’re owed without challenge—we want to hold them to their contract.
Your Right to Royalties
Hollywood is home to a number of creative unions that have negotiated the rights to royalties (or “residuals”) over decades. Guild members are guaranteed a certain percentage of royalties for each exhibition of the work they were involved in. Even if you aren’t a union member yourself, your contractual rights may be based on union standards.
Because royalties are contractually guaranteed, you already have strong evidence on your side if you’re not being paid as you should. However, some attorneys will try to creatively interpret contractual terms or introduce ambiguities to deny you the royalties you’re owed. In other cases, a company just needs a bit of a push to abide by the contract they’re trying to ignore. No matter your situation, our attorneys offer free consultations to help you determine your next steps toward receiving the royalties or residuals you’re owed.
Who Brings Royalty Disputes?
Royalties are paid to the creators and holders of intellectual property for its continued use and consumption by the public. They are common throughout the industry, and can be owed to:
- Actors and Performers
- New Media Creators
Whether the payments you’re owed are called royalties or residuals, there’s no legal difference when it comes to protecting your right to your income. Don’t let dishonest and greedy companies or individuals deny you the rightful payment for your hard work. Call our attorneys to see how we can help.
