Our specialist copyright lawyers can help you protect and commercialise your rights, or advise on copyright disputes and infringements.
We help copyright owners, but can also help you if you’re involved in a dispute over ownership or have been accused of infringing copyright.
What copyright services do we offer?
There are three main areas where our copyright lawyers can help you:
- Filings/applications – although you can’t register copyright in the UK, we can put you in touch with partner firms if you wish to register it in jurisdictions where this is possible (such as the US)
- Commercialisation – we can help you buy, sell, licence or franchise your copyright
- Infringements, disputes and enforcement – we can help you enforce your rights if your copyright has been infringed, or if a copyright owner believes you have infringed their rights. We can also help in other disputes around who owns copyright and whether a copyright is legally enforceable.
Who can we help?
Our Copyright team can help anyone – from individuals such as designers and recording artists, through to large corporate enterprises.
We have in-depth knowledge of a range of sectors including:
- Food and drink
- Media and entertainment
Copyright issues in these areas can be especially challenging, but we have the experience and industry knowledge to protect your rights.
Copyright infringements can be costly to you or your business. We can help you protect your copyright, or avoid infringing someone else’s rights. Where copyright may have been infringed, we can help enforce or defend your position.
