Copyright confers on the author of a work a wide range of immediate legal protection.

A work will qualify for copyright protection if it is original. This is the sole requirement. A work can by nature be artistic (novels, plays, paintings, musical works) or scientific (computer programs, data banks).

Copyright includes patrimonial and moral prerogatives.

Patrimonial rights entitle the author to control the reproduction and representation of his work. Authors also benefit from a resale right allowing them to be adequately compensated for all future sales of the work.

The moral right defends the paternity and the integrity of the work, and entitles the author not only to decide when to disclose the work publicly, but equally to have it withdrawn.

We offer our services in ensuring the protection, use and defence of your copyright.
