The owners of creative output are faced with a rapidly changing legal environment as legislators, courts, and tribunals tackle the challenges of copyright in the digital age. Locating infringers can be difficult when content can be instantly copied and transferred across borders.
Hogan Lovells lawyers have a proven record of success in prosecuting and defending significant copyright cases, protecting rights in works that range from software and books to films and computer games. Our geographical reach - across the United States, Europe and Asia - enables us to plan strategies and carry out successful enforcement campaigns that protect our clients' intellectual property through civil actions, pre-action injunction applications, customs actions, administrative raids, or criminal actions.
We are able to take action against counterfeiters of digital media in jurisdictions applying to the entire supply chain of counterfeit products, including source, transit, and destination countries. We can advise you on strategies for preventing the distribution of copyright-infringing material on the internet, on Digital Rights Management, and on copyright levies, which vary according to jurisdiction.
Our international team of copyright lawyers is available to advise you on the availability and scope of copyright protection, to handle the registration of works where necessary, and to assist you in securing copyrights in works prepared by your employees and independent contractors. We handle all types of copyright actions, including disputes over digital rights and internet infringements.
