Copyright and Trade Descriptions - Trading Standards Representation
JMW provides expert representation to businesses and individuals facing Trading Standards action regarding copyright and trade descriptions issues. Our Trading Standards team is greatly experienced in cases of this type and we have an excellent track record in helping to defend against wrong or unfair allegations of wrongdoing.
At JMW, we can provide a range of services to help defend you against allegations of copyright infringement and to make sure you are best prepared to deal with any action taken by Trading Standards officials.
For instance, if required we can prepare written statements on your behalf, attend meetings or interviews and can negotiate with the regulator to ensure you give yourself the best chance of successfully defending against Trading Standards action.
If you are accused of copyright infringement, it may be that you are either wrongly or unfairly accused. Just because action is taken against you, this does not mean you are in the wrong and it is important you seek expert legal representation to best defend the interests of you and your business.
Copyright can be a tricky subject and involves the right of copyright owners to prohibit or authorise use of their works, such as copying, renting and issuing literary or musical works. It is not always a straightforward issue and with the right team in your corner you can make sure you are not unjustly punished.
If you have been accused of misleading others on what they are spending their money on, we can help to defend against any allegations of breaching the Trades Descriptions Act. It is an offence to make false statements about the goods or services you sell, but accusations of this type can be wrong or unfair and we can provide the expert guidance you need to demonstrate this.
