Levine Plotkin & Menin assists its clients in connection with a variety of intellectual property and related matters, including trademark, copyright, right of publicity, privacy, internet and social media.
Increasingly in the digital age, our clients’ properties become brands, and establishing trademark rights is an effective tool in monetizing those brands and preventing infringement. We work with our clients to clear and enforce trademark rights, both in the United States and around the world. We also draft and negotiate trademark licenses and related agreements.
On the copyright side, we work with our clients to develop strategies to register and enforce their copyrights, and advise clients on chain of title issues. We routinely advise clients about compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and issue DMCA take down notices in order to prevent infringement of our clients’ copyrighted works. We also advise clients about the “fair use” of third party materials in connection with their own artistic works.
We have worked with co-counsel on several significant intellectual property related litigations, including one involving the fair use of third party content in a Broadway play, and another involving infringement of our client’s logo on t-shirts.
