Publishing and Digital Media

Meeting Business Needs in Digital Publishing

Today, virtually every company has become an online publisher, whether through a business Web site, blog, or participation in social media. As a result, businesses face new kinds of legal and technical issues that must be considered and resolved. Our firm has represented a vast array of businesses throughout New York City and the country in most areas of digital publishing and Web media, including:

  • Contract negotiation: We can assist you in the negotiation of technical contracts, from those with designers and developers of the Web site, to agreements with Internet hosting companies, and linking and key word agreements, as well as agreements with writers, photographers, illustrators, music composers and models.
  • General counsel: The laws governing digital publishing are constantly changing, and it is vital to stay up-to-date with the guidelines and policies. We offer clients counsel in matters such as the drafting of privacy policies and Terms of Use, as well as in copyright, defamation, and policing and protecting trademarks and other IP property rights on and rights pertaining to the Internet.
  • DMCA compliance: The Digital Millenium Copyright Act provides significant advantages to publishers who comply with its many requirements. We work with businesses to understand compliance issues related to the DCMA, including not only the drafting of Terms of Use and takedown provision notices, but also counseling clients in how to handle takedown requests.
  • CAN-SPAM: We address matters regarding Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography And Marketing Act of 2003 (CAN-SPAM). This includes opt in and opt out provisions, click-wraps and other online compliance issues.
  • Domain names: We aggressively litigate against cybersquatters and advise on strategies for protecting IP rights on the Internet.
