Copyright

Copyright law arises in many fields from the spoken word through to images appearing on the Internet.  It can cover all forms of writing and drawn images and may even extend in some cases to the shapes of sculptures or even buildings.  Its reach is far wider than many suppose and it is also more complicated than is commonly thought.  In the business context in particular it can arise in a variety of ways and in some instances the copyright in a company’s written know-how can be its most valuable asset.  It is therefore important to know how best to protect the intellectual property rights that you have in that asset and to be able to preserve, licence or sell those rights.  At times it is necessary to assert your rights in the copyrights that you hold and in that respect we can assist you in terms of preparing the appropriate wording for letters or (if the matters becomes litigious) claims that you may need to make.
