Just as information technology and Web commerce have altered many aspects of our everyday life, so too have they made an impact on the field of intellectual property law, creating new IP rights and concerns. When conducting business on the ever expanding and evolving Internet, it is important to retain counsel that is well schooled in the relevant technologies and on top of the latest industry projections and trends. As a smaller sized practice with all the resources of a large firm, Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman has been helping businesses boost their online presence and profits—securing domain names and e-rights, mapping out new ways for our clients to utilize information technology—since the very inception of the Internet. Our attorneys are among the most experienced in their field, keeping Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman at the forefront of this growing industry both in the U.S. and around the world.
Our client owned a registered trademark for a line of jewelry. A large Internet shopping network registered this same trademark as a domain name and began selling jewelry on the site. After a preliminary injunction trial hearing, the Court held that our client’s registration was valid and had been infringed, and the network was ordered to change the site’s name.
