How Our Creative Industries Experts Can Help

We support clients in the commercial exploitation and enforcement of patents and other innovations. A patent is one of the best ways to protect an idea or an invention and the team has a strong reputation and real commercial experience in the full range of patent law issues

Internet and online trading

We support clients in developing on line trading models and developing terms of business; enforcing intellectual property rights in an online environment.

Data privacy and cyber security

Advising clients on all aspects of data and privacy matters, including data audits, data subject rights, complaints to the ICO and data sharing arrangements

Regulation and entertainment licensing

When a business faces intervention from an enforcing authority it is usually because something serious has happened and business continuity may be at risk as a result. Clear thinking and prompt action are needed to turn the situation around.

Key Projects

Driving the right result

Our client used to be an authorised distributor of a spray-on polymer coating product owned in the US but now owned differently in Europe. The third party European owner of the trade mark issued proceedings for trade mark infringement, passing off and copyright infringement.

This complicated case involved looking at brand splitting issues and also the extent to which it is permissible to use a sign for descriptive purposes only to reference particular goods and services. We advised about how to resolve the issue and prevent the court action.

This was successfully achieved with a confidential settlement reached through mediation, which set out the parameters for future use and drew a line under the IPEC proceedings.
