We represent interests of authors and persons who acquire copyright or buy licenses for purposes connected with their business activity. At the same time we optimise the conditions of such transactions, including tax conditions.
We have experience in conducting court disputes on behalf of authors as well as buyers/users of third party copyright. The Firm provides comprehensive advice in copyright-related aspects of business activity. Above all, we draw up in-depth legal opinions concerning all types of works and objects of neighbouring rights. We draft contracts covering copyright matters, including transfer of copyright, regulating the terms and conditions of using a work (license agreements), pertaining to making and disposing of compilations of works of other parties. We conduct audits of the legal status of legal and intangible assets from the point of view of third party claims and to determine the limits of permitted use.
We provide legal support and professional representation in talks with collective copyright management organisations.
