Copyrights, Trademarks & Licensing
Securing and protecting copyrights and trademarks.
Clients call us to handle a wide variety of transactional and litigation matters involving both copyrights and trademarks before the United States Copyright Office and United States Patent and Trademark Office. In addition, we serve as lead coordinating counsel for our clients with international filing needs. We also have extensive experience in representing plaintiffs and defendants in copyright and trademark litigation in the federal courts across the country.
In the cutting edge domain of the Internet, we aggressively enforce our clients’ rights in protecting their Internet and domain names. In this regard, we regularly commence WIPO domain name arbitrations for our clients and, when necessary, litigate against cybersquatters in federal court.
In the area of licensing, we regularly represent our clients in negotiating complex agreements and represent both licensors and licensees across a wide spectrum of businesses. We have a substantial practice in representing entertainers and celebrities in connection with their licensing and endorsement agreements. This representation includes structuring the business deal, negotiating the financial and business terms, and drafting of the licensing and endorsement agreements.
