Trademark, Copyright, and Licensing

Protecting Our Clients’ Most Important Assets.

At Futterman Dupree Dodd Croley Maier, we recognize that our clients’ intellectual property assets are often among their most important.  We work closely with each client to integrate appropriate legal protections with their business needs.  

Our approach is interdisciplinary. We regularly provide advice and counsel to our clients in trademark, copyright, trade secret, unfair competition and related intellectual property matters. We regularly prosecute trademark applications and assist our clients to manage their trademark portfolios internationally. We draft and negotiate appropriate nondisclosure, invention and licensing agreements for our clients and their employees, customers, suppliers, and business partners. When necessary, we litigate intellectual property disputes on behalf of our clients. 

Our practice includes:

  • Software licensing
  • Strategic alliance and partnership agreements
  • ASP, web-hosting, and technology consulting agreements
  • Reseller, distributor and OEM agreements
  • Trademark prosecution, licensing and litigation
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure programs
  • Business and intellectual property litigation
