Copyright Law Firm

Copying works or ideas from someone without giving them credit falls into the greyest areas of copyright law. With the evolution of technology, more and more businesses/ individuals are finding it hard to protect their creative works -- be it logos, sound recordings, music, articles, video films, cinematography, software, etc.

EAGLEGATE Lawyers is an IP firm with experience in a wide range of copyright matters. We work closely with our clients to understand their offerings and assist them with copyright licensing, assignment, protection, infringement and litigation.

We offer end-to-end service to the leading business names in Australia. No matter the type of industry they belong to, we comprehensively advise clients on the copyright ownership and enforcement of the works created by their team. Since all businesses are different, and their requirements are different, we customise our services to the needs of our clients. We communicate effectively and keep you updated throughout the process.

We understand that choosing a copyright lawyer can feel overwhelming and confusing. And you don’t want to hire someone that doesn’t align with your organization’s morals and fails to understand your desired outcomes.

If you are satisfied with our advice, you can move forward with us. There is no obligation.
