Shelston IP provides detailed advice on creation, subsistence and protection of copyright in Australia, and has managed both straight-forward and complex disputes relating to all aspects of copyright.


Our experience and advice spans the full spectrum of copyright law including:

  • general copyright matters under Australian law
  • moral rights
  • conflicts of laws as related to international copyright matters
  • IP clearances and risk assessment related to use of Australian created, produced or dubbed works
  • website content
  • film, TV and music production, acquisition and distribution
  • copyright ownership advice, disputes and contracts
  • parallel importing.

We have drafted and negotiated a wide range of commercial arrangements, for both copyright owners and licensees, and acted in key litigation to ensure client interests are promoted and protected.
