What activities does copyright make illegal?

If a work is protected by copyright, then depending on the type of work it is it will generally be unlawful for a third party to copy it; sell or otherwise issue it (including giving it away); perform, show or play it in public; communicate it; adapt it or import it; although there are certain exceptions.  The copyright owner can of course give a third party permission to do any of these things. 

Our intellectual property specialists have the knowledge and experience to assist in preventing infringement of copyright works, this includes ensuring the proper authorisation or licensing of activities that might otherwise infringe.
