Copyright Lawyer Switzerland

Expertise and innovation are the pillars of economic success. The copyright lawyers of MME in Switzerland, based both in Zurich and Zug, have broad experience in counseling international clients and representing them in court and arbitration proceedings related to copyrights and other IP law issues. We support clients in protecting their developments, creations and copyrights.

As a component of Swiss intellectual property law, a copyright enables an owner of intellectual property the right to exclude other parties from distributing, displaying, reproducing or using the property covered by the copyright, whether it is tangible or intangible, for a specific time period. A copyright gives the owner the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display or license his work. The owner also receives the exclusive right to produce or license derivatives of his or her work. Limited exceptions to this exclusivity exist for types of “fair use”, such as book reviews.

By working closely with our clients, we develop a deep understanding of their innovations and business models. Whether it’s medical technology, the internet and software business, or entertainment and telecommunications – and virtually all business areas in between – we advise our clients in the creation, commercialization and utilization of copyrights and other intellectual property rights. Our copyright attorneys are knowledgeable in all areas of general copyright law, including but not limited to copyright protections and copyright licensing.

Among others, we specialize in:

  • negotiating copyright and other IP contracts (licensing and franchising, know-how and technology transfer, R&D, distribution agreements, ticketing)
  • executing IP due diligence
  • consulting in the area of copyright, advertisement and media law
  • creating and enforcing copyright portfolios
  • Copyright Infringement
  • Copyright Licensing
  • Copyright Litigation
  • Copyright Prosecution
  • Copyright Protection
  • International Copyright

Dr. Andreas Glarner is the author of several publications in the field of copyright and IP law and has extensive experience consulting and litigating for the protection and enforcement of trademark rights and other intellectual property rights as well as unfair competition law. Dr. Martin Eckert held office as a judge at the Federal appeal Commission for Swiss trademarks. Prof. Dr. Andreas Furrer regularly advices in matters related to unfair competition law.
