Copyrights – Enforcement


The proliferation of electronic media and Internet commerce has dramatically altered and increased the risk of infringement of copyrights and other rights of authorship. Sideman & Bancroft attorneys help clients meet this challenge, as well as protect copyrights in traditional media, by applying litigation skills to protect important interests. This includes infringement litigation involving computer programs, literary works, sound recordings, musical compositions, works of art and design, architectural designs, and many other protectable works. We also are experienced in litigating the often complex issues surrounding disputes involving authorship, ownership, works for hire, copyrightability, originality and fair use.
