Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Please can you tell me a bit more about the situation so that I can advise. Thank you
OK thank you, ***** ***** it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
I have looked into your query in more detail but unfortunately it is not something I can assist with. I will therefore ‘opt out’ and a colleague better placed to deal with the nature of your query should hopefully pick this up soon. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thank you
Thanks for your question. Unless the software was written in the course of employment in which case the employer owns the copyright, you still retain ownership unless there is a contract to say otherwise. See part I of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988.
