Licensing, transfers, transactions & agreements

As copyrights have come to represent artists’ core assets, and a large proportion of the value of many companies, they are being traded and licensed in ever more creative ways. The owners and licensees of valuable copyrights can change frequently. Our attorneys will work with you to ensure that the correct legal formalities are in place, allowing commercial transactions relating to your IP to progress smoothly and efficiently.

In many circumstances, copyright in a work can be sold and transferred between parties. Such works are also very often licensed, allowing certain third parties to use or exploit the work in certain agreed ways, often only in certain areas and for a fixed period of time, and subject to oversight by the owner of the copyright in the works. It is also possible to use copyright as security in financial transactions in various circumstances. The requirements for validly transferring, licensing, or conducting other transactions relating to copyright vary from country to country. Our attorneys can help guide you through the complexities of these processes to make them as smooth as possible.

"They are highly responsive, know their stuff and, most importantly, understand the commercial context of their advice. Other PATMAs I’ve dealt with focus on the technical aspects rather than commercial practicalities."
