Protection of intellectual property is taken very seriously in the digital age, when copying, transferring or downloading material from the internet is quick, easy, and almost free. Increasingly, film and television companies are seeking information from internet service providers about who is downloading what in order to facilitate prosecutions. If you have been accused of an offence relating to copyright, contact us now.

FACT Prosecution Criminal Defence Lawyers

The Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) is an organisation sponsored by the film and video industry and which deals with film and video piracy.

They work closely with other investigating agencies and authorities and bring frequent large-scale prosecutions for violations of copyright law including film and DVD piracy, and illegal downloading of content.

Parliament and the Courts are keen to pursue a policy of deterrence in this area. The Courts have the power to impose fines and even imprisonment on those convicted of an offence. The following acts of Parliament create offences and impose sanctions:

  • Video Recordings Act 1984
  • Trade Marks Act 1994
  • Copyright Designs & Patent Act 1988
  • Conspiracy contrary to common law

If you are subject to prosecution under any of the above, contact Lewis Nedas Law now. We have been involved in a number of high profile prosecutions and have built up real expertise in this area.

“I was put in touch with Lewis Nedas Law through a mutual friend and I was not disappointed. The team were nothing but straight forward, honest and realistic about the nature of my case and the expected outcome from the minute I got in contact and were willing to take over from the previous company at very short notice. With their unrivalled experience and expertise in their profession the outcome was even better than expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
