Copyright Infringement

When you have talent, you will inevitably be copied; the important thing is for your work to be respected.

Copyright infringement takes various forms; in Italay, one of these is unauthorised copying (or “contraffazione” in Italian; literally counterfeiting), which is the act of imitating another person’s product. In these cases trademarks, models and patents are the primary institutions protected under Intellectual Property. We normally refer to plagiarism when the object that’s being copied is protected by authorial copyright (“authors’ rights”). Canella & Camaiora has considerable experience in the field of intellectual property and can help you better understand the logic behind this area of law, providing specialized legal counselling and assistance.
