Copyright litigation, while a last resort, can be necessary to protect a business' investment in its creative works, or to defend against an assertion of copyright.
We have experience in advising and representing clients in diverse industries in asserting and defending against copyright claims, including disputes related to the unauthorized use of copyright content in social media platforms, the ownership and content of websites and online properties, the effect of moral rights when adapting a creative work, and the appropriate use of "Open Source" software code.
We have experience dealing with the Business Software Alliance (BSA) and its members, and have advised clients to achieve compliance with software licensing matters. Contact us if you have received an audit request or request to pay damages from the BSA.
As well, we have experience resolving copyright assertions by movie studios sent to customers of Rogers after infringement has been detected online. Contact us if you are in receipt of a Statement of Claim from UN4 Productions, Colossal Movie Productions, Wind River, Voltage Pictures or others.
