As the boundaries between technology, media and communications businesses continue to blur, our specialist lawyers understand the converged sector from end to end and work with clients to add real value to their business decisions and growth.
With technological advances creating new platforms for distributing content, the burning issue for Media and Entertainment businesses is how to successfully monetise and protect that content.
Issues with significant legal implications for owners and distributors of content include:
In this fast-moving sector, clients across the entire spectrum of the industry are supported by our strong media and entertainment team. We have extensive experience in every major area of the media and entertainment industry.
Developments such as cloud computing, internet-enabled mobile devices, VOIP, cookie technology and the widespread reach of social networking present opportunities for businesses, but they can also carry significant legal challenges.
Increased regulation, data security, privacy, outsourcing and the use of third party platforms, business continuity, white labelling, access to capital and IP protection are just some of the issues facing technology and telecoms companies today.
Businesses also need to find new ways of financing the development of new products and services, whilst protecting their ROI in this rapidly-changing environment.
Our highly experienced and industry specialist Technology and Telecoms group will help you make the most of, and minimise the risk of, all these developments, as well as bringing their sector experience to bear on technology supply and procurement projects, and outsourcings.
