Acumen Business Law Works to Protect Intellectual Property Across the Media and Entertainment Industry


Sussex, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/28/2019 -- Ownership of work in the Media and Entertainment Industry can be tricky to handle. Copyright treats creative works such as poems, books, paintings, films, photographs and more as intellectual property, which then has an author, which is the creator of this work. When a business commissions work to an outsourced supplier, or employs someone to create a new work, such as a brochure or a website, copyright law can help clarify who has ownership of that work, and agreements can be put in place. When it comes to the media and entertainment industry, copyright laws are essential, as cases of people stealing artwork, plagiarism, sampling music, and more, are quite common.

Acumen Business Law helps clients to protect their intellectual property, whatever sector of the media and entertainment industry they are in. A large part of this is helping them to understand copyright laws, what their rights are, and how this practically works in an industry where media is constantly being created and shared. The team of specialised solicitors at Acumen Business Law are experienced in dealing with copyright laws and how this can be used to stop intellectual property being used by any party other than the copyright holder.

Clients of Acumen Business Law can also get advice from the business law firm, for example about how they can earn income through their creations by licensing their works to others, and their commercial law advisors explain exceptions like "fair use". As well as helping businesses and individuals to set up copyright and licensing agreements, Acumen Business Law also helps their clients to make claims for statutory damages where there has been a copyright infringement. Their team relieves clients of the burden of proof by handling their copyright registration for proof of ownership.
