Copyright Audits

Our attorneys regularly conduct copyright audits that often reveal registration, enforcement and licensing opportunities that can generate revenue streams and open new markets.  Additionally, such audits can reveal means by which to protect against counterfeiters and gray good sellers online and issues with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) relating to circumvention of technological measures to control access to licensed works.

Copyright Litigation

As new technologies develop and the laws governing copyrights continuously evolve, our copyright litigation team vigorously protects our clients’ copyrights and defends them against infringement and other copyright claims in courts at all levels throughout the country.  We are experienced in litigating the nuances of copyright law, including authorship and ownership, infringement, fair use and originality issues.  We have handled matters involving the DMCA and have experience representing digital media service providers in royalty rate-setting proceedings to determine the appropriate licensing rates for the creation and distribution of content.

Copyrights and eCommerce

Copyrights can be a valuable tool in protecting assets sold in emarketplaces.  Our team often assists clients in obtaining copyrights for products that can be an additional tool to remove counterfeit and copycat goods on emarketplaces.
