Using IP Law To Achieve Your Goals

There are many misconceptions about copyright protection. It is sometimes said, for example, that the decision to register a copyright with the U.S. government is generally voluntary, since putting the work in tangible form is what creates the protection.

If you need to bring a lawsuit to protect against copyright infringement, however, registration is necessary. Similarly, there is indeed a legally recognized concept of "fair use" of copyrighted material. But this does not mean a claim of fair use is always a valid defense to an infringement claim.

Our lawyers are committed to protecting your interests and helping you use IP law to achieve your goals. Our practice spans a full range of issues, including:

  • Resolving concerns about trademarks or patents.
  • Compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)
  • International copyright considerations
