Intellectual Property Solicitors in UK
Intellectual property refers to original creative work which can be treated as an asset or physical property. Intellectual property ‘rights’ are primarily considered under four main capacities; these are namely copyright, trademarks, design rights and patents.
What is Copyright?
Copyright applies to work that has been recorded in some way; rights exist in a variety of items from literary, music, artistic and dramatic creations, as well as films, any sound recordings as well as typographical arrangements. It provides the creator or author specific rights in relation to the work and prohibits any unauthorised usage allowing the creator or author to take legal action against occurrences of infringement.
