Copyright starts to apply the moment an original work is created, and is vested on its creator upon establishment of the work without the necessity of meeting any formal requirements. This means that a copyright does not need to be registered and no fees must be paid for the protection arising from it. Copyright provides protection to works, their creators, and owners of economic rights. It ensures effective protection against infringements of moral, economic, and personal rights.
In these times of expanding commercialization of culture and the creative industry, the issue of copyright protection is an area where action using specialist knowledge must be taken. This is why we meet our clients’ growing demand for services in this field. We assist our clients in various copyright-related areas and in enforcing their rights arising from it. Examples include works, publications, and paintings, as well as traditional and digital media.
