Copyright and Database Rights

Our specialists provide quick and effective advice on copyright issues affecting businesses worldwide. We offer assessments on liability and prospects of success in the early stages of disputes, enabling clients to make informed decisions about how to proceed.

Notable deals and highlights

  • We have advised a well-known multinational media company on copyright enforcement matters.  
  • The team has assisted well-known broadcasters in relation to the use of unauthorised third party set-top boxes.
  • We are acting for Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency for Great Britain, in a high profile case in the UK High Court in relation to the misuse of their mapping data by a third party. This is anticipated to be the leading case on the scope of the European database rights and its application to mapping data.
