Protecting Your Trademark and Copyrights
Jacobs & Burleigh provides ongoing international policing and enforcement services for many clients with very valuable trademarks and copyrights, and it has been highly successful in dissuading infringers through cease and desist actions and litigation, where necessary. Our firm has had great successes in recovering damages against infringers by making claims under the Lanham Act, the Copyright Act, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the Anti-cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, and the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy procedures. Contact us online or call 212-207-8787 to schedule your initial consultation.
One of the most important parts of trademark protection is policing your mark. Our attorneys use trademark monitoring services to determine if anyone else is infringing upon your trademark, or using any colorably similar mark. If that is the case, we work with you to determine the best strategy to protect your rights, including the issuance of cease and desist letters, and where appropriate, negotiating licenses on your behalf, to allow others to use your trademark while providing you with compensation when appropriate. We will also advise you of problematic pending applications and represent you in the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board. We work with clients to register and protect their trademark portfolios overseas in the European Community, Asia, Far East and Latin America.
