Copyright Law

We have handled matters and counseled clients regarding copyright protection for original designs in the retail and fashion industries, as well as original works of authorship such as books, articles, web content, business manuals, dramatic works, photographs, business-related films, architectural and other drawings, artistic works and computer software. Our team assists clients with all aspects of copyright protection and commercialization, facilitating the acquisition of rights in copyrightable works, licensing such works to others, and enforcing and defending copyrights.

With the ever-expanding use of the internet, we also work closely with clients to protect their copyrighted material from online abuse through various approaches, including through litigation or the use of non-litigation tools provided by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.  When necessary, our lawyers expertly help clients to navigate around or acquire rights in the copyrights of others to avoid expensive confrontations in court.
