We represent authors, journalists, collaborators, publishers and publishing executives in high level contract negotiations. We provide advises and litigation services in negotiating sophisticated publishing rights agreements as well as contracts relating to the exploitation of literary works, in film, television and live theater.
As a regular part of our practice, we also perform clearance reviews with regard to copyright, privacy and defamation law for both individual authors and publishers and other media companies.
Publishers of newspapers, magazines, books and scientific journals are facing problems in the digital environment with regard notably to their ability to licence and be paid for online uses of their content. We provide assistance to give the possibility for right holders to license and be paid for the use of their content, including content distributed online.
