Copyright Lawyers

Copyright plays a key role in the exploitation of creative achievements, both offline and online. A current focus is the development of new business models on the Internet.

CMS Germany – the copyright professionals

Our firm has a long track record of specialising in advice and litigation related to every aspect of copyright and media law. The key issues include conventional music, film and publishing law as well as all new media issues.

The lawyers at CMS Germany advise the owners of rights to creative accomplishments when they find their privacy or other rights violated. Our experts also support you in negotiating contracts for the granting and transfer of licences and exploitation rights.

Turning defence into attack

We assert your interests in court and out-of-court when faced with copyright infringements. We actively support you in pursuing and countering claims for injunctive relief and compensation.
