Copyright is conferred by the Copyright Act, 1978 without registration. The Act protects literary, artistic and musical works, sound recordings, cinematographic films, computer programmes, radio and television broadcasts, satellite transmissions and published editions. The categories of persons who are afforded copyright protection are defined in the Act and include foreign persons and incorporated bodies from member states of the Berne Convention.
Our firm has a professional team that assist our clients with advises on copyright, copyright infringements, copyright litigation, registration of cinematographic films, license, assignment and other agreements. Copyright on artistic works exists for life time plus 50 years and can only be assigned in writing.
