Intellectual Property Licensing
At Scott & Scott, we are proud of our strong track record of helping businesses draft and negotiate IP license agreements in a variety of business settings. Savvy business owners know that giving others a license to use their intellectual property can be risky. Businesses frequently find themselves without effective recourse to stop undesirable use of their intellectual property, because they did not retain sufficient control in the terms of the license agreement. Scott & Scott works with its clients to minimize the risks associated with its intellectual property licenses.
DMCA Takedown Notices
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides a fast and cost-effective mechanism to protect works in which you hold copyright interests, including pictures, text, and other literal expressions contained on your company’s website. That mechanism allows content owners to send notices of copyright infringement to the Internet service provider (ISP) hosting the copied content. An ISP’s failure to respond to such a notice opens it up to liability for contributory copyright infringement, so many ISPs will take quick action – often within 72 hours – to remove clearly infringing content that has been posted by their users.
