Sterne Kessler protects all aspects of IP on the Internet, including trademarks, copyrights, domain name rights, and enforcement of IP rights.

Sterne Kessler's internet practice focuses on all aspects of IP on the web, including obtaining trademark and copyright protection for website content, domain name registration, patent protection for internet business models and enforcement when intellectual property rights are being infringed on the internet.

In an increasingly mobile and connected world, the website of a company or product is a critical tool for marketing, as it is often the principle means of communicating with potential customers. Today, websites are where brands are built, products are sold and services are marketed — each component is critical to the success of an online-savvy company that plays to win within this industry.

Our team has deep experience addressing the marketing and communications aspects of IP on the internet, such as obtaining trademark and copyright protection for website content, domain name registration, and ensuring messages do not run the risk of false advertising complaints. The team also helps clients obtain, defend and enforce patent protection for internet business models. We have worked on matters such as:

  • Domain name dispute resolution
  • Copyright infringement
  • Misappropriation
  • Unfair competition
  • Trademark dilution
  • Trademark infringement
  • Patent infringement
  • Website audits
