Copyright Counseling and Litigation


While an idea is not copyrightable, the expression of that idea is an asset you should protect.

These days, ideas can quickly take shape as products and services, including traditional and new media, computer software code, Big Data and data compilations, online content and visual arts. As technology advances and the laws surrounding copyrights continue to evolve, protecting and enforcing your copyrighted works is critical to your intellectual property lifecycle and the success of your business—whether you are an entrepreneur or a Fortune 100 company. To protect those assets effectively, propel your continued success and secure favorable transactions or licensing terms down the road, you need a legal team that is well-versed in both cutting-edge legal matters and the diverse business issues of this industry.
