Protection Against Copyright Infringement

The question of who owns copyright can be crucially important. Unfortunately, the rules governing ownership of copyright are very complex, and often counter-intuitive. Similarly, the rules governing the infringement of copyright are often misunderstood. Our copyright lawyers can help you to understand the law and if necessary, help you to take legal action.


Copyright Agreements

It is important to consider how you use copyright works belonging to others. For instance, if you instruct a photographer to take photographs for a brochure, they would typically own copyright in them. You would not be able to re-use those photographs, or even reprint the brochure without the photographer's consent. Our copyright lawyers draft copyright agreements that help you clarify such relationships from the outset.


Copyright Licences and Assignments

We can prepare copyright licences and assignments to help you generate maximum returns from your copyright works.


Recent examples of our copyright work includes:

  • Successfully removing copyright infringing material from YouTube.
  • Advising The Fire Service College on copyright ownership issues, and preparing a suite of standard copyright licences for it. Together this helped it achieve Information Fair Trader Scheme (IFTS) status.
  • Advising a health services provider on copyright issues affecting the dissemination of information by libraries and other organisations.
