Strategic copyright counsel for creators and companies.

Our copyright attorneys help clients fully leverage their rights in original works through registration, licensing, and enforcement. We counsel on copyrightability, fair use, and defending against infringement claims. With extensive litigation expertise, we pursue and defend copyright disputes over software code, digital content, multimedia, published works, industrial design, and other protected creations. Our team stays keenly aware of how copyright law intersects with emerging technologies like AI-generated content, NFTs, and the metaverse.

Understanding copyright is crucial for creators, companies, and platforms to fully capitalize on original works while reducing infringement risk. We develop customized copyright strategies aligned with our clients' business goals and creative visions.

We assist clients with the following:

Registration – handling copyright registration for all types of creative works, including software, website content, videos, music, literary works, visual art, advertising materials, and more. Our attorneys are experts in completing registrations that fully protect clients' rights.

Licensing – negotiating and drafting licensing agreements allowing clients to monetize their copyrights through content distribution, merchandise production, commercial use rights, and other arrangements.

Enforcement – when infringement occurs, we take action by sending DMCA takedown notices, drafting cease and desist letters, and filing federal lawsuits on behalf of clients to protect their copyright interests and recover damages.

Litigation – our experienced copyright litigation team handles all phases of copyright lawsuits, including pre-trial motions, discovery, gathering evidence, deposing witnesses, jury selection, and trial. We pursue favorable settlements or take cases to verdict.

Due Diligence – conducting copyright due diligence for mergers, acquisitions, and investments to identify any risks, liabilities, or value associated with copyright assets involved in transactions.

Policy Development – implementing internal copyright policies and procedures for consistent protection, use, and licensing of copyrighted materials produced by the organization.  For public sector organizations, schools, colleges, and universities, we advise on copyright issues around curricula, digital learning platforms, library resources, performing arts, and other areas, including on the limits of fair use, public domain works, open access policies, copyright ownership of student and faculty works, TEACH Act compliance, and minimizing infringement risks.
