Copyright law

Our legal expertise in the field of copyright includes defence against or assertion of copyright infringements, in particular warnings and interim injunctions. We will also be pleased to advise you in the drafting of contracts, in particular in copyright contract law and copyright licence agreements, but also in connection with the legal design of the related property rights (databases, photographs and photographs).

A copyright serves the creator of a work to protect his or her intellectual property. This affects authors, composers, painters, designers, sculptors, inventors or even programmers. Not only the protection of rights is often in the foreground, but also their exploitation. In this respect, copyright law is of great economic importance.

We support you in the enforcement of your rights. This includes comprehensive advice, drafting, negotiation and review of licence agreements, and, in the case of infringements, also the preparation of warnings, temporary injunctions and litigation proceedings.

This applies in particular to the following areas:

  • general copyright and copyright contract law
  • film and television contract law
  • music contract law
  • publishing law, in particular also the law governing music publishers
  • rights of management societies
