Unfair Competition, False Advertising And Copyright Infringement

Protecting You In The Marketplace

Whether you are a marketing executive for a large corporation, an artist or a young entrepreneur, and whatever your particular line of business might be, you will need legal protection in the marketplace. Copyright infringement, false advertising, unfair competition and related lawsuits occur commonly in the United States.

Our attorneys bring decades of experience and a track record of success to every one of our cases. We have won many claims in the millions of dollars for our clients, including the largest trademark litigation verdict in history, which totaled more than $140 million.

Unfair Competition

Unfair competition is a pretty large umbrella term covering many types of IP cases. There are many unfair competition claims, but in the IP world, it usually involves using another company’s trademark, trade dress or copyrighted material, and passing it off as original.

Our lawyers protect the IP rights of clients who have been harmed by unfair competition. We also defend clients against claims of unfair competition.

False Advertising

When one company engages in false or misleading advertising, it can harm other companies and their ability to compete in the marketplace. A plaintiff can obtain an injunction to force the other company to stop its false advertising efforts, as well as damages.

Our attorneys protect our clients by bringing false advertising claims, and we provide strong defense for clients who are being sued for false advertising.

Copyright Infringement

Copyright is different from trademarks and patents. A copyright protects the owner of a specific work like a song or a book. When someone holds a copyright, no one else can use or perform the copyrighted work without permission of the copyright holder. An obvious example of copyright infringement would be a television commercial featuring a popular song, without the permission of the copyright holder.

Our lawyers protect copyright holders against copyright infringement, and we defend clients who have been accused of copyright infringement.
