We are a leader in Technology Law including software audits, illegal-movie-downloading lawsuit defense and subpoena response, and general copyright infringement matters (ex. fonts, music, fashion). We have appeared in over 160 federal court cases in our 15 years of law practice.
In the area of software audits, we are one of the few intellectual property law firms in California that have a niche practice area in the software audit space. This includes helping business owners from across the United States in responding to software audit letters from trade organizations such as the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the Software Information Industry Association (SIIA), Autodesk, Adobe, Microsoft, Siemens, CNC Mastercam, SolidWorks, Altium, Vero Software, and others.
In the area of "torrent defense" we have helped clients who are being accused of federal copyright infringement, or who have received subpoena notices from their ISP (ex. Comcast, Cox. AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner) in regard to movies believed to have been illegally downloaded through "BitTorrent" protocol such as movies produced by Strike 3 Holdings, Malibu Media, London Has Fallen (LHF Productions), Mechanic Resurrection (ME2 productions), Flava Works, and others. We also handle Joe Hand Promotions, G & G Closed Circuit Events, UFC, J & J Sports, Innovative Sports Management, and others.
We also have assisted athletes and business owners in California "Right of Publicity" matters involving the illegal use of a person's name, image likeness, nickname, voice, personality, and identity.
We also help YouTube content creators, photographers, videographers, and other creative professionals in copyright cases including DMCA takedowns, fair use analysis, and related matters.
