Copyright & Works of Artistic Craftsmanship - The Current UK Position
Copyright law has traditionally been interpreted in the UK far more narrowly than on the European continent.
This is particularly true when it comes to the assessment of works of artistic craftsmanship.
However, recent decisions suggest that this area of protection is not confined to works of fine art and, subject to the facts, the court is at liberty to find copyright subsisting in all sorts of ‘copyright works’.
If this is maintained, it is quite possible that claims for copyright infringement will be on the up.
This new virtual classroom seminar is aimed at legal representatives with a working knowledge of copyright law.
