Stites & Harbison's Intellectual Property (IPT) Group handles a wide range of copyright matters. We assist regional, national and international clients in registering and protecting their rights under copyright law, and in enforcing those rights through infringement actions and DMCA "take down" notices.
We also help clients maximize the value of their copyrights through licensing agreements and other relationships with third parties. This includes assisting clients in the acquisition or disposition of copyright portfolios.
In transactions involving the acquisition or disposition of copyright portfolios, our intellectual property attorneys work with our firm’s business services attorneys to:
- Coordinate due diligence efforts
- Evaluate and assess the status of copyright portfolios involved in a transaction
- Draft and negotiate the appropriate terms related to copyrights in a transaction, whether they are central to or incidental to the larger transaction
- Ensure the accuracy of documents that reflect the transfers of copyrights.
We also have experience working on secured transactions in which copyrights and other intellectual property form a significant part of the collateral securing a loan. Again, we draw on our firm's interdisciplinary experience to complete such transactions.
