How Does Copyright Protect Your Work?
Copyright protection is automatic. There is no application process or need to pay a fee in the UK. Copyright protection prevents people from:
- Copying your work
- Putting your work on the internet
- Making an adaptation of your work
- Distributing copies of your work- whether they make financial gain or not
- Renting or lending copies of your work without your permission
- Performing, showing or playing your work in public
Our expert copyright solicitors are well known for advising clients from a range of business sectors – from media to sport to tech – on how to protect original works and prohibit other people from using intellectual assets without permission.
We focus on all sectors within the national context. We combine product and sector knowledge to offer our clients specialist advice and achieve the best possible outcome.
With a large and dedicated team, we cover the full range of IP Law including complex and high-value transactions, copyright levies, collective rights management and defending IP in litigation.
Our commercial solutions are schemed by legal experts. At Stirling Ackroyd Legal, our team of IP experts will conduct thorough research to establish your rights. We work with specialist legal counsel to support your goals and will formulate the best course of action for your business.
In a world with increasing reliance on social media, the understanding of your intellectual property rights can appear blurred. This can be detrimental to your business, particularly as your IP rights could be compromised once you upload photos, designs, music or video on social media. To help you understand the risk to your business, contact our team for a more thorough understanding of your IP rights.
Core to our approach is our flexibility. We offer a bespoke service, tailoring our resources to suit your needs and act in your interests. We will work with you to act in accordance to your best interests and protect both you and your business from infringement.
If you have not registered your intellectual property rights, you still own unregistered intellectual copyright which can be protected.
