Handling Groundbreaking Copyright Litigation

Fenwick has over two decades of experience handling ground‑breaking copyright infringement litigation that occurs in the wake of technology development.

  • Deep copyright expertise in matters including the application of copyright law to the Internet and other online environments, literal and non-literal copying claims, open source, DMCA safe harbors and anti‑circumvention issues, secondary liability and fair use
  • Experience ranging from nationwide enforcement program for leading publisher of digital images to strategic defense of technology companies in lawsuits by the recording industry, motion picture studios and television networks
  • Successful track record in defending and obtaining temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions in copyright cases

Our copyright litigators also work closely with our intellectual property lawyers to manage and plan for risk, both in traditional copyright cases of all kinds, and in emerging areas of uncertainty and change.
