Patent Infringement Litigation
According to federal patent law, anyone who makes, uses or sells a product that infringes on a patent may be held liable for patent infringement.
It is important to note that ignorance of the existence of a patent is not a viable defense to an infringement lawsuit.
If you, your brand, or company was the victim of patent infringement, our attorneys can help you file for damages. You may be able to gain compensation to contribute to the loss of profits, for royalty payments, or for treble (triple) damages.
Copyright Infringement Lawsuits
The owner of a copyright has the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display and license the protected work. If a person or corporation infringes on this right, our intellectual property litigators may be able to help you obtain legal remedies, such as an award for any profits made by the copyright infringer and damages for past infringement.
Moreover, when a corporation has willfully and knowingly infringed on a copyright, a court may assess additional damages commensurate with the harm you have suffered. If appropriate for your business, our attorneys may also be able to negotiate a licensing agreement with the infringing company as a practical alternative to litigation.
Trademark Infringement Litigation
Our attorneys handle cases involving basic trademark infringement, as well as lawsuits for:
- Misappropriation of corporate names and images in branding disputes
- Trade dress infringement
- Online trademark infringement, including cases involving domain names, cybersquatting and unfair use of trademarks in pay-per-click advertising
- Unfair competition
- False advertising
- Violations of rights of celebrity
Trademarks are protected under both federal and state law. Under the Lanham Act, a federal law governing trademark infringement cases, our attorneys may seek equitable relief in addition to monetary damages.
Equitable relief may include a court order directing the trademark infringer to pay for corrective advertising, as well as the destruction of the infringing products or packaging.
