Example 1: Let’s say you write a popular article based on AI technology and you do not register the copyright. You see that your competitor is releasing the same article to promote his business. You could send a cease and desist to take the article, which was reproduced without your consent, off of his website. However, you wouldn’t be able to file a lawsuit regarding copyright infringement or claim any statutory damages. It is recommended to register the copyright for your article as soon as it is made public.
