We have represented the interests of publishing industry clients for many years, regularly negotiating contracts, devising licensing programs, guarding against infringement and defending clients’ rights through arbitration and litigation. We have lots of hands-on experience in the fields of publishing and entertainment, and closely monitor the latest industry trends, including matters related to copyright, rights of publicity, and defamation. From large publishing companies to individual authors, we represent a full-spectrum of industry entities, providing a full array of intellectual property services.
- We obtained partial summary judgment for a book publisher involved in numerous disputes pertaining to copyright infringement, and later successfully negotiated a favorable settlement of the remaining elements of the dispute.
- We represented an online publisher in its contact re-negotiations with its numerous authors and in disputes arising from its earlier contacts.
