The DMCA or Digital Millennium Copyright Act gives copyright owners a valuable tool to fight copyright infringement material.

Copyright owners can complete a web form, made available thru Google or other online service providers, requesting the service provider to remove or disable access to allegedly infringing material.

item intro 99 sTo shield an online service provider with a safe harbor from monetary liability, the service provider must comply with the requirements of the DMCA. If the alleged infringements provided is comprehensive, accurate, with specificity of percentage of removal, service provider must act expeditiously.
Copyright owners have been using this law aggressively to remove, shut down or take control over websites that are allegedly in violation of copyright and trademark laws.

In a recent lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Illinois, arguably one of the easiest district courts to find trademark and copyright violations because it is one of the only courts to rely solely on the Initial Interest Doctrine, plaintiffs filed a lawsuit naming more than 3000+ websites as defendants, mostly located in China. Our firm represents one of the defendants and successfully negotiated a dismissal with prejudice.
We have successfully represented copyright owners in their pursuit of justice. We have also represented defendants in responding and defending lawsuits which often times names hundreds or thousands of defendants.
