Copyright, Domain Name and Trademark Litigation
Cases litigated by the Firm in the trademark and trade dress arenas include infringement, dilution, cyberpiracy and unfair competition claims involving trade names, service marks, trademarks, packaging, domain name disputes, initial interest confusion through misappropriation of website metatags, misappropriation of styles of doing business and trespass to chattels through the use of Internet web-crawlers. In the copyright arena, our experience ranges from claims based on computer source code, the “overall look and feel” of printed publications, attribution disputes over a series of historical murals and claims involving the distribution and importation rights of CDs and DVDs. Our Intellectual Property Group also has substantial experience with other forms of copyright litigation, including matters involving architectural drawings and ornamental designs.
