INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LITIGATION
The digital age and the Internet have introduced new challenges in the ongoing battle to protect the rights of the originators and owners of intellectual property. To a segment of our society, for example, anything accessible on the Web is free — a notion that severely threatens intellectual property rights.
Our intellectual property practice helps clients counter that dangerous notion and protect their rights. We have done so for the makers of:
- Computer software
- Jewelry and accessories
- Satellite broadcaster of network television signals
Often we investigate and prosecute civil injunctive and damage actions against individuals and companies infringing upon, counterfeiting or diluting the trademarks and copyrights of the legitimate owners.
These cases usually involve intensive discovery and experts from a variety of disciplines, including accounting, economics, marketing, software auditing and questioned document examination. In addition, we have been retained by patent counsel to serve as trial and/or local counsel in patent litigation.
