What is Copyright Infringement?

When copyright material is used without permission or copied in part or in whole, it may constitute infringement. Copyright law is a complex area and often it can be difficult to determine whether someone has infringed copyright or whether their dealing come under some exception or defence to copyright infringement. There are many types of copyright and ways which copyright material material can and can’t be used within the parameters of copyright law. The extent to which copyright works have been copied can also often be a highly subjective and uncertain question. If you’re looking to protect your work or believe someone has infringed on your copyright, an experienced copyright lawyer will be able to provide appropriate legal advice and guide you on the best way to approach your matter to achieve your desired outcome.

How Do I Know If Someone Has Infringed On My Copyright?

Sometimes identifying copyright infringement can be fairly clear cut and obvious. Other times, the determination of infringement can be more complex and will need more detailed investigation to establish whether infringement has occurred. Many factors come into play when determining if a copyright work has been infringed upon which can often come down to a very subjective analysis and a firm appreciation of the Copyright Act and case law interpretation of copyright law principles. An experienced copyright lawyer can provide advice and support regarding complex copyright issues including whether copyright has been infringed and what actions may be taken to prosecute or defend against infringement
