Online Rights Enforcement

As the amount of business conducted online has increased, so too has the threat of online infringement. Infringers will frequently post on their website photographs or text from an IP owner’s website, or sell infringing products on major online marketplaces. Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman has extensive experience enforcing clients’ IP rights online on major websites/marketplaces, including Amazon, eBay, Alibaba, Scribd and Walmart, by using clients’ IP registrations, applicable laws such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and each website/marketplace’s specific IP-enforcement protocols. In instances where infringements are located on an infringer’s website, Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman effects the removal of the offending material by communicating with the appropriate party or taking appropriate judicial actions.
