Copyright

In the realm of copyright, our services encompasses the filing of copyright notifications, advisory and enforcement work.

Malaysia, like many other Berne Convention countries, does not require formal registration of copyright. Nonetheless for more tangible protection, we advise clients to take advantage of the voluntary notification system made available in Malaysia since June 2012. They can assert ownership and deposit their copyrighted works with MyIPO, in exchange for a certificate issued as confirmation. Such prima facie evidence of a copyright claim strengthens the owner’s position in the event of a dispute.

Our team is experienced in handling copyright issues in all major fields of creative endeavour.
