Part of the wider international IP group, our copyright practice offers multi-jurisdictional coverage of the full range of legal services relating to the protection, exploitation and clearance of copyright.
We have leading practitioners throughout each of our international jurisdictions, offering expertise in clearance advice and liability opinions, particularly those involving online use or new technology, copyright levies, licensing, disputes and litigation, audits and policy programmes.
We work across all sectors and advise on an equally diverse range of clients, including advising high profile literary estates, on copyright enforcement; mobile telephony companies, on copyright advisory structures for downloadable ring tones; and ISPs, on matters relating to user generated content on high profile social networking sites. We are particularly strong in the Media, E-commerce and Communications sectors.
