Copyright and media law
The owners and licensees of copyright works need to both protect their rights and exploit them in the most effective way. Likewise, disseminators of content need to be sure that the risks of claims for (among others) defamation, privacy, contempt and breach of regulatory codes arising from the dissemination of their content is minimised as far as possible.
Our Copyright & Media Law practice is recognised for its leading industry experts who have extensive experience in all aspects of copyright and media law.
We provide a full service (both pre-publication and litigation advice) to prestigious book, magazine, newspaper and music publishers, industry organisations and collecting societies, broadcasters, film and television production companies, advertisers, technology companies and high-profile authors, artists and musicians, among others.
We are also a leading adviser to digital, mobile, internet and social-media platforms. Our advice to clients on all IT-related publishing requirements and every aspect of online and mobile publishing is critical to their success.
As a pan-European firm, we frequently advise on cross-border and multi-jurisdictional copyright and media law issues.
