TV & Film

There are few more exciting environments to work in than TV and film. But there are also few more legally complex. How far can you protect programme formats, for example? How can you prevent theft of content online? It’s important to have advisors who live and breathe the sector.

At Hamlins we have carved out a strong reputation in the field of TV, film and broadcast, having won a landmark victory on copyright in broadcast and live streaming over the internet.

We work for independent producers, writers and TV and film production companies, and are firmly committed to protecting the rights of creators to all aspects of intellectual property created before, during and after filming is complete.

Our skills extend to protecting the rights of film composers, having negotiated contracts for films scores, advising on the relevant protection of rights.
