In Reply to: Can a previously unknown Technique/Style now being used be basis of infringement of copyright?? posted by Lorraine Cassell on February 03, 2001 at 11:03:55:

: Hi,
: I have been producing motion graphics/special effects for a stock footage company, and sometime ago I explained in detail a series of new pieces that have a very distinct technique and style, with which interest was shown, and a proposal intent for future production on such was listened to and entertained.
: This proposal was to be put on a back burner for a couple of months from that point until the then present schedule was complete.

: After completing the then schedule I handed in the new series for direction as was agreed sometime ago, but after not hearing anything for two months, I chased it up and was told that they now "already" have something a little similar in progress being produced by another.

: Having something similar was in no way expressed or indicated to me when I initially told them about this particular technique/style, and I fear that they have taken my proposal for it to be produced by someone else.

: Now although they may not be using my exact pieces, would it be seen that they have infringed any copyright laws for things such as infringement of style and technique.
: Indeed, as with all my pieces/styles/techniques, I excersized basic copyright by means of recorded delivery sometime before letting them view such.

: Any info would be as you can tell greatly appreciated.
: I am based in the UK.

: Thank you
: Kind Regards

Dear Lorraine Cassell,

We responded to the email about this and suggested a Reality Check (sm). it was not clear that This is a UK matter.

Insofar as the advice we might have for you, I believe that the law is the same in the UK as the US.
