Copyright & related rights

In copyright, disruption is king. The way in which content is delivered, consumed – and misused – has changed out of all recognition in just two decades. 

And because new business models have upended traditional channels, our future-facing copyright teams are digital experts: tech savvy, regulation-aware and a step ahead of current trends.

We enhance your approach to content strategy and exploitation with a powerful fusion of legal and technical expertise, encompassing copyright, database rights and moral rights, all designed to extract the greatest value from your assets.

Plugged directly into the copyright ecosystem of content creators, owners and users, we act for both the originators and distributors of creative work – ensuring that your artistic creations, music, publications and software are fully protected and properly rewarded.
