Copyright & industrial property rights

Copyright basically protects every personal intellectual creation. Since the insertion of computer programs into the area of copyright protection, all individual works in the field of culture and information technology have to be considered as protected objects.
In addition, copyright law also recognises numerous so-called ancillary copyrights. The best known is the protection of photographs, which means that every simple photo enjoys copyright protection.

Intellectual property rights, including copyright, serve to safeguard technical, aesthetic and intellectual know-how as well as the protection of trademarks. In addition, competition law regulates the conduct of the market, in particular of competing companies. The entire area of intellectual property protection, including copyright and competition law, is of enormous importance in commercial transactions, not least because a company’s intellectual know-how is one of its most valuable assets.

Our interdisciplinary team is experienced in representing your interests and advising you on all copyright matters. This applies to both business-relevant and private matters concerning the protection of intellectual property. We pursue the violation of your rights in a targeted manner and with the necessary speed and we assist you in the out-of-court and judicial enforcement.

We also support you in connection with the defence of a warning letter or a legal claim from copyrights, whereby the focus of our advice is always directed to a solution of the dispute that is in line with your interests and economically justifiable.

Our goal is to secure your intellectual, technical and creative achievements in the best possible way and to avert and punish unauthorized interventions of third parties without delay. Professional competence and the secure handling of procedural peculiarities in litigation for industrial property rights ensure that you enjoy the benefit of your investments alone.

We advise you personally.
