The main purpose of a copyright is to protect expression of thoughts and ideas. Copyright protects 'original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works'. In order to secure copyright protection the author must have bestowed upon the work “sufficient judgement, skill, labour or capital”.

Copyright is a right given to or derived from the works and it is not a right in the ideas. There is no copyright in ideas. Copyright subsists only the material form to which the ideas are translated. We hold the expertise in litigating copyright and database disputes as well as licensing and other contractual issues in this area.
