We are pleased to attach a link to an overview of UK copyright, which we trust will prove a useful reference for any copyright issues that you may face, whether in the context of disputes or commercial matters.

The chapter was authored by David Cran, Jeremy Drew and Paul Joseph, three of the partners in RPC's IP & Technology team, for Getting the Deal Through – Copyright 2013, which contains equivalent country by country analysis provided by leading intellectual property practices in key jurisdictions.  Online access to the whole guide is also free to in-house counsel – you can find the details here.
