The Federation Against Copyright Theft, commonly known as FACT, is a UK organisation that seeks to undermine intellectual property (IP) crime, focusing on the protection of physical and digital content. FACT is recognised as a leading force in protecting IP rights, detecting and targeting those who are involved in IP crime as internet use has grown and technological advances have continued apace. In carrying out this role, FACT has supported businesses to take a pro-active and comprehensive approach to preventing their content being stolen by criminals. If you find yourself accused of IP crime, Wilford Smith can help. Our Criminal Defence Solicitors will provide you with a service that is exceptionally strategic and results driven to support you in conducting the most robust defence to any allegations.
The work carried out by FACT is sponsored by the film and television industry, with the organisation working closely with investigating agencies to bring about large-scale prosecutions for breaches of copyright law such as DVD piracy and illegal downloading. Those convicted of such offences can face substantial fines and, in some cases, custodial sentences. The Criminal Defence Team at Wilford Smith has the required skills, knowledge and determination to ruthlessly develop a top-level strategy on your behalf, and can call on the support of the highest quality barristers should your case require it.
