Use of a person’s copyright material without their permission may be an infringement of their rights. Determining whether a particular use of copyright material infringes the owner’s rights requires consideration of the definitions of infringing acts in the Copyright Act 1968, and the many exceptions or defences to infringement claims. Infringement can be quite damaging for both the copyright owner and the alleged infringer, so it is always wise to get expert legal advice before using another person’s material or making claims of copyright infringement.

We understand that there are many ways to resolve a copyright dispute, and we will fully explore a range of strategies to determine the most effective approach for your situation. In cases where litigation is the best action, particularly with valuable rights which have a limited commercial life, we are ready to take quick and decisive action.
