Protecting your copyright online: Building a case

Ten thousand is the minimum number of steps experts say a healthy person should take in a day.

Few in New York will disagree that the rise in popularity of streaming music websites and apps has created confusion and conflict in the realm of copyrights.

Victims of legal malpractice seek justice
