Copyrights, Database Rights & Confidential Information

We advise on all aspects of ownership, protection, exploitation and enforcement in a wide range of industries. We work with government agencies to enforce rights and take legal proceedings in connection with anti-counterfeiting and piracy. This includes advising on on-line use, new technology, copyright levies, licensing, copyright dispute litigation, audits and policy programmes.

Our copyright experience also includes, for example, protecting employers against misuse of software, data and other materials on an urgent basis, where issues of breach of confidence and breach of contract also arise.
