Copyright Honey & Blanckenberg

Copyright is a legal right which subsists in a creative work and which by virtue of the statute governing copyright in permits the owner thereof to authorise other persons to do the things which the copyright law designates in relation to that work.

Works which are eligible for copyright protection in Zimbabwe include literary works, musical works, artistic works, audio – visual works, sound recordings, broadcast, programme carrying signals and published editions.

Unlike patent law and industrial design law, no formality is required for the registration and protection of copyright in Zimbabwe.

The Patent division provides services related to the transfer and exploitation of copyright, folklore and performer’s rights including licenses, civil and criminal protection and enforcement.
