OVERVIEW

Protecting your ideas

Copyright owners have the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display, and license their protected works. Sometimes these intellectual property rights are far more valuable to a company than its fixed assets.

The copyright team at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig help individuals and businesses defend their precious intellectual assets from infringement. Our goal is to help clients develop and protect their most innovative ideas.

Our experience in copyright disputes

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s experienced copyright litigation team helps clients understand what they can protect and how they should protect it. We work with individuals and businesses across a variety of industries to protect their intellectual property, including computer software, source and object code, online web content, literary works, film, and music and sound recordings. Our lawyers help clients enforce their exclusive right to their intellectual property by evaluating and removing infringing uses online and elsewhere. We also have extensive experience in defending clients against allegations of copyright infringement and responding to cease-and-desist letters.

Our copyright dispute lawyers also have a deep understanding of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). We know how to leverage the DMCA to quickly remove online infringement or help our clients comply with the safe harbor provisions of the act when they receive a notice of infringement.

What we do

  • Represent plaintiffs and defendants in copyright infringement disputes before the U.S. Copyright Office and in courts
  • Defend clients in fair use lawsuits
  • Send and respond to cease-and-desist copyright infringement letters
  • Help clients evaluate claims under the U.S. Copyright Act, including monetary damages for infringement
  • Advise individuals and businesses in connection with copyright infringement allegations
  • Ensure client compliance with the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA
  • Assist clients in removing infringing online content under the DMCA
