Copyright law is a special legal area which requires specialist knowledge in relation to the subject matter itself and the specific procedural features. It is not without reason, therefore, that specialist bodies exist in most courts in Germany to deal with copyright law.
Our clients benefit from our experience and qualification in all matters relating to national and European copyright law. The following non-exhaustive list contains the most frequent issues we address as part of our work in this area:
- File sharing,
- Unauthorised use of images, text and other work,
- Copyright collective law
- Visual arts law
- Protection of moral rights (e.g. author’s name)
- Publishing law
The internet enables quick and simple duplication, en masse, of even copyright-protected content without the consent of the originator. For our clients who make a living creating copyright-protected work, this could lead to significant financial losses. In collaboration with partners, the use of our clients’ works online can be tracked, and unauthorised use can be effectively opposed. Feel free to contact us.
