JDSA knows intellectual property. We assist clients with all forms of intellectual property agreements. JDSA’s IP Law Team advises clients on a broad range of intellectual property issues in the business and commercial context, such as license and royalty agreements, technology and service agreements, content licenses and assignments. Regardless of the industry, the complex issues make it critical to have the help of an attorney with intellectual property expertise to properly negotiate and prepare these highly specialized agreements. A precise and tailored agreement is essential to protecting and commercializing your intellectual property rights and technology.
In an effort to avoid ownership challenges, JDSA’s IP Law Team can help you select the most protectable intellectual property, and get it registered. Our attorneys regularly advise clients in identifying, protecting, and policing their intellectual property. We help clients select protectable trademarks and copyrights, and, once selected, we handle federal, state, and international trademark and copyright registrations.
Litigation — When disputes arise over ownership rights and the use of intellectual property (IP), our experienced team of litigators are ready to step in to protect clients’ rights. Our IP Law team is well-versed in litigating trademark, copyright, and trade secret disputes in state and federal courts throughout the country, as well as before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
Digital — For today’s electronic business marketplaces, we have experience in litigating domain name, website and other Internet issues, and have regularly litigated under the auspices of ICANN and WIPO in UDRP and URS proceedings for generic and other TDLs, as well as litigated cybersquatting actions in state and federal courts. Our attorneys have obtained injunctions to lock and prevent the use of infringing domain names; “take down” orders for web providers to remove infringing material; and have secured significant statutory judgments for clients under various intellectual property laws.
Agriculture — Our team works with clients of all sizes, we understand the unique licensing and royalty arrangements in the agriculture industry.
Post-registration — Once registered, our team works with you to police infringement of your marks. We offer post-registration trademark watch services in the form of monitoring online uses and federal filings; if potential infringement arises, we work with clients to police their marks and halt the infringing use.
Specialized Interests — We help clients with the seizing of counterfeit goods and prosecuting counterfeiters in federal courts. Other specialty areas—highly relevant to today’s business and personal environment—include computer fraud and abuse actions encompassing unauthorized access to computers, electronic storage media, and data. Additionally, we assist clients with entertainment law issues, including rights of publicity and privacy, defamation, libel, slander, and first amendment protections under Anti-SLAPP laws.
We look forward to assisting with all your intellectual property needs.
