Copyright Disputes

Copyright disputes can arise in a number of circumstances, and we are here to help. Whether you've been served with a cease-and-desist letter or with a lawsuit--or if someone is infringing on your copyright--we can help guide you through your options. And do so for a reasonable rate.

 

Copyright Disputes Involve Photos, Words, Sounds, and Movies

Copyright issues can involve anything that is "copyrightable." Essentially, that means that anything put down in some form--whether in sound, in type, or in image--can be the subject of copyright.

 

In layman's terms, then, copyright disputes center on whether someone has improperly copied someone else's photo, text, or image. Often this involves a detailed understanding of U.S. copyright law.

 

Modern Copyright Disputes Often Involve P2P File-Sharing Networks, Including BitTorrent

While copyright infringement actions still exist for copying texts and music, the most common copyright suit now involves P2P file-sharing networks, such as BitTorrent. In these lawsuits, the owner of the copyrighted material (a movie) usually sues several "John Doe" defendants in federal court and asks for expedited discovery from internet service providers (ISP's) to discover the true names of the alleged offenders.

 

In turn, the ISP's alert the "John Doe" defendant and often give the yet-unnamed defendant less than a month's time to avoid having the defendant's name disclosed publicly as part of the lawsuit.

 

We Can Help With Your Copyright Dispute Issue, From Photos to P2P Infringement Actions

We take all of these issues seriously. We have counseled clients on a range of copyright dispute issues, including books, photographs, licenses, and BitTorrent litigation.

 

Especially in BitTorrent litigation, we have significant experience in negotiating agreements for "John Doe" defendants and for named defendants. We understand the costs and uncertainties of the process, and can help guide you through it.

 

If you or someone you know has been sued by a copyright "troll" or needs help with a copyright dispute, please call us for a confidential consultation at 281-407-9538. Let's see how we can help.
