Copyright Law
Copyright protection is often available in addition to other intellectual property rights - WRST focuses on the complementary nature of this protection.
Traditionally copyright provides protection for creative-artistic works, e.g. of composers and authors.

The development of technology and media has extended the relevance of copyright far beyond the traditional art and artist protection. Software enjoys protection under copyright laws independent from the issue of patent protection for computer implemented inventions. The protection against unauthorized exploitation of databases  is also part of modern copyright law.

Digital technology, which allows copying without loss of quality, and the international distribution via internet pose new challenges for national and international copyright protection.

Our attorneys have many years of experience in the enforcement of copyrights and the drafting of contracts for all levels of the copyright exploitation chain.
