Matters of copyright dominate the intellectual property concerns of the publishing industry. Parsing out these IP issues calls for an understanding of this venerable business sector, as well as the ability to fight forcefully and think creatively to secure, protect, and exploit our clients’ rights. Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman has been assisting clients from the publishing industry for more than 35 years, gaining a reputation for exemplary work and a forceful approach along the way. At Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman, our attorneys regularly negotiate contracts, devise licensing programs, guard against infringement, and defend clients’ rights through arbitration and litigation. Our attorneys stay on top of the latest industry trends, including those related to the developing world of online publishing. From large publishing companies to individual authors, we represent a full-spectrum of industry entities, with many retaining our services for successive decades at a time.
We obtained summary judgment for a book publisher involved in numerous disputes over copyright infringement. During a subsequent jury trial to address remaining unresolved issues, we sought out and successfully negotiated a favorable settlement of the dispute.
