Copyright and intellectual property disputes

Music copyright refers to the legal ownership of a musical composition or recording. This ownership usually grants exclusive rights to distribute and reproduce the work, along with licensing rights that allow the copyright holder to earn royalties.

If someone has used music for which you hold the copyright, you may have grounds to file a claim for copyright infringement. Our team can support you through this process, aiding in establishing your legal position and enforcing your rights.
