Copyright counseling and litigation
As globalisation of the media business has become the norm, companies and artists alike must protect their intellectual property in novel and creative ways. Clients with needs ranging from copyright counseling to copyright infringement litigation rely on Crefovi, and its ‟Copyright litigation” practice, for assistance in protecting all forms of work, including:

- sound recordings.
Operating from a broad global platform, Crefovi deploys its lawyers to provide clients with distinct knowledge of international copyright concerns, to help clients fight piracy and infringement and increase their level of copyright protection worldwide. Crefovi has represented companies from a variety of industries that have tapped the firm’s diverse technical skill sets and its unmatched global resources for counsel across subject matter and jurisdictions.
Crefovi has over two decades of experience handling ground-breaking copyright infringement litigation that occurs in the wake of technology development, in particular:
- deep copyright expertise in matters including the application of copyright law to the Internet and other online environments, literal and non-literal copying claims, open source, safe harbors and anti-circumvention issues, secondary liability, and fair use;
- experience ranging from nationwide enforcement program for leading publisher of digital images to strategic defense of technology companies in lawsuits by the recording industry, motion picture studios and television networks, and
- a successful track record in defending and obtaining temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions in copyright cases.
Our copyright litigators also work closely with our intellectual property lawyers to manage and plan for risk, both in traditional copyright cases of all kinds, and in emerging areas of uncertainty and change.
A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each matter in relation to copyright litigation, and come back, matter after matter, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of intellectual property law contacts and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
