We have extensive experience prosecuting and defending copyright actions.  We have also developed particular expertise in counseling clients regarding the changing aspects of copyright law, including the liability and safe harbor issues raised by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). 

The ability to strategically navigate the intersection of copyright law with new mediums of expression and new forms of digital content is a hallmark of our practice.  As only a few examples, we have reached favorable outcomes in copyright disputes involving:
