Legal advice / Copyright

Copyright plays a key role in ICT and Internet law.

Virtually every work, whether it be a web page through to a photograph on a cell phone, is copyright-protected. You do not need to apply for copyright or even post a copyright statement together with the work. This makes copyright the most common intellectual property right.

A license is required for the exploitation of copyright, particularly when software licenses are involved. Copyright law, however, contains the necessary exceptions, such as the right to quote or the legal right to use software. It often is difficult to judge exactly when these exceptions apply. For instance, what restrictions apply to the right to quote on websites?

Ask Legal ICT to advise you on the possibilities for copyright and the use of copyright-protected works. We can draw up, review or edit copyright licenses for you, and advise on alleged copy infringement or license breaches.
