Snedden Hall & Gallop has recently assisted a small business to protect copyright associated with services provided by its business.

The client became aware that an organisation was reproducing images from its website without authorisation, which is unlawful under the Copyright Act 1968. We assisted the client by contacting the organisation, and, through correspondence, were able to achieve a positive outcome for our client in a short amount of time without the need for litigation. Not only did the copyright infringer agree to refrain from making further reproductions, but they also agreed to pay our client’s legal fees in full.

Being proactive and serious about your copyright protection can lead to quick and relatively inexpensive solutions. Seek advice from our Intellectual Property team today to ensure you are taking the necessary steps to protect your ideas.
