What we do.

Copyright Law

Thomas Höhne, Georg Streit

„Copyright“ – these days, everybody is talking about it. However, that doesn't necessarily imply that everybody knows what it means if one grants another "the copyright". And that's where the issue starts to shape up - and it does, more often than not, end with disagreements over the question of who granted whom which rights, for what purposes, on which territorial scope, for which period of time, for which fee. And the manifold appearances of media on the internet didn't exactly simplify the topic. We advise you on all matters of copyright law, from literature to movies, from music to architecture, from painting to photography, not matter if author, licensee, user or consumer. Our book "Urheberrecht für die Praxis" has already been released in its second edition.

For a special area of copyright law, the copyright of originators and designers, we set up an individual website: www.architekturheber.at.

In „trend-Anwaltsranking“ („Austrias best Lawyers“) 2016 h-i-p are listed among the Top Ten in the field of intellectual property.

In the ranking of 2016 by "The Legal 500 - The Clients' Guide to the Legal Profession in Europe, Caucasius & Central Asia" h-i-p  are ranked fourth in Intellectual Property in the ranking of Austrias best law offices, Thomas Höhne and Alexander Koukal are additionally mentioned in connection with a copyright lawsuit.

As in previous years, in 2015 the handbook „The Legal 500 – Europe Middle East & Africa“ rates us number one in the field of “Intellectual property and media”. That pleases us as much as the description as „well known for its expertise in film and television projects“.

Höhne, In der Mauer & Partner is recommended among the top 4 law offices in “Intellectual Property and Media” by  „The Legal 500 – Europe Middle East & Africa (2013)”.

In 2012 the handbook „The Legal 500 – Europe, Middle East and Africa"  recommends us as one of the best three law offices in the field of "Intellecutal property and media". "Höhne, In der Maur & Partner Rechtsanwälte is dominant in the media sector, particularly for representing newspapers. Thomas Höhne is highly rated and in demand, and Georg Streit is also recommended", the guide writes about us.
