Copyrights and Copyright Litigation

Recognized by Chambers USA, our team counsels clients on all matters of copyright law, from securing copyrights and developing copyright portfolios to enforcing rights and defending against infringement claims in court. We create strategic plans to effectively manage and protect our clients’ copyright assets and entire IP portfolios.

Our team works with clients in a variety of industries and with a variety of copyrighted works, including motion pictures, visual art, sound recordings, textiles and clothing, digital media and computer programs. We advise our clients in connection with copyright registration, licensing, and reproduction and distribution agreements, as well as the defense and assertion of copyright infringement claims. We actively protect our clients’ rights, including by bringing federal actions and leveraging United States customs procedures to prevent the unauthorized importation of goods.

With extensive experience in internet, software and database protection laws, we are one of the preeminent copyright practices focusing on the impact of new technologies on business owners. As part of our technology copyright practice, we represent both software owners conducting audits of licensees, and licensees in responding to audits.
