During the last decade, the Indian entertainment industry has come a long way ranging from new avenues of content commercialization, to sophistication in licensing content. In today’s digital and information age, it is well understood and accepted that content owner is supreme. While a plethora of business opportunities are available to content owners and creators, capitalizing on the said opportunities requires an insight into entertainment business, expertise in copyright  and several other laws,  knowledge of modern technology and awareness of transactions in the industry.

Having worked with some of the leading production houses, television channels and writers/artists, our team of experienced entertainment lawyers with interdisciplinary expertise offer business driven entertainment law services to clients. From rights acquisition to licensing and merchandising, our team has worked on numerous transactions and has seen the cycle several times and provides information and insightful advice to clients. Over the years, our team has successfully managed and resolved copyright disputes, license violations, domain name disputes and so on, and has helped clients make commercially beneficial decisions.

Through our piracy management, take down and litigation management services, we have long been helping clients enforce their rights, and convert violators/infringers to licensing partners. Our ability to understand business objectives of our clients and think out of the box to arrive at innovative strategies sets us apart from our peers in entertainment law.
