The copyright laws of the United States and other countries impose special requirements relating to burdens of proof, procedures, and other matters. Thus, litigation in this area is more than just a form of contract or tort litigation. It requires particular knowledge and experience.

We have represented copyright owners claiming infringement and those defending against claims of infringement.
