As copyright arises automatically on the creation of a piece of work, i.e. without any formal registration process, a person or organisation infringes copyright if they copy your work wholly or substantially.
In some cases, copying is obvious, but most cases that end up in court are not so clear. There is no hard and fast rule to proving copyright infringement; that’s why it’s vital to seek experienced legal advice as soon as possible when you suspect that your work has been copied.
Our copyright infringement lawyers have dealt with many cases of both clear and unclear copying. We can offer a useful insight into the court process, assess the opponent and the potential loss, and then recommend the right enforcement action to protect your brand.
Alternatively, if you’ve received a copyright infringement letter, i.e. another party believes you have infringed their copyright, then we can review and advise on your case. If you have a good legal case for defending the claim, we can lead that process for you.
