Copyright law is part of the broad field of intellectual property law. It is a very fast-growing branch of law, and the rapid development of the internet (including the Internet of Things) and technology in general means that intellectual property is becoming of paramount importance, and negligence on this subject can result in multi-million dollar losses for companies and damage to image.
At the centre of copyright law is the work, which must be fixed in some way (on paper, digitally, in spatial form – these are just examples of items in the catalogue of works. Protection extends to industrial design, artistic creations, photographs, musical, audiovisual, scenic and verbal works.

We offer legal advice on copyright law and, in the event of infringement, we represent the client in court.
