Contrary to popular belief ‘one’ cannot "Copyright" anything.  Copyright is a legal right that exists automatically in every original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work and in sound recording, films, broadcasts or cable programmes.

Copyright is a valuable form of intellectual capital for any business.  It is essential to ensure that it is protected and that rights are transferred by way of licence or assignation where appropriate.

We can advise you on every aspect of copyright protection and use as a business asset. The team deals regularly with litigation where copyright is an issue.
