Copyright protection is an important means of protecting the vital activities of any business—particularly for print, radio, television, film, music, software and video games. Copyright is also an indispensable tool in the fight against software pirating and plagiarism, as well as theft and unlicensed use of protected material. Fasken Martineau’s copyright team is ready to help.
An important part of our practice involves advising clients on licensing, copyright registration, distribution agreements, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures as well as anti-counterfeiting enforcement throughout Canada. In the event of a copyright dispute, our seasoned lawyers will defend your interests, be it before the federal and provincial courts or in arbitration proceedings.
Fasken Martineau’s copyright team also advises clients with respect to Canadian copyright reform issues, international IP treaties, and the IP-related provisions of trade agreements.
