Their commercial & intellectual propertyspecialists worked closely with London-based expert music CounselGwilym Harbottle of Hogarth Chambers to make sure that we put theright legal structure in place to give the song the best chance ofsuccess.
"Although there is stiffcompetition from contenders such as this year's X Factor winner andStar Wars, it would be wonderful if "Move as One" claimed thecoveted Christmas number one slot this year".

In addition to the excitingreal-life learning experience for the students the project israising much needed funds for a great charity."
