Are you planning your website, want to publish a book or start an extensive advertising campaign? Then you need copyright know-how.

Austrian copyright protects “works” (literature including computer programs, the art of sound, the fine arts and film art). The exploitation rights to a work are with the author; Exploitation rights are understood to mean reproduction, distribution, rental, distribution, transmission, presentation, performance and performance rights. Anyone who “exploits” copyrighted works in such a way requires a work use permit or a right of use.

In the case of copyright infringement, there are claims for injunctive relief, elimination, publication of a judgment, accounting, appropriate remuneration and compensation, also for damages of an ideational nature.
