Knobbe/Martens: Intellectual Property Law

Media & Entertainment

Media & Entertainment

Our Media and Entertainment practice group is involved in nearly every aspect of pop culture, social media and communication. We represent a wide range of clients in these fields, including movie producers, theaters, athletes, musicians, actors, writers, studios, celebrities, video games and interactive entertainment publishers, amusement parks, multimedia developers and distributors, and colleges and universities.

We help our clients protect brands, rights of publicity and entertainment content and assist clients with licensing, copyright ownership agreements, unfair competition, advertising, defamation, registering and enforcing trademarks, and obtaining and enforcing patents in both the U.S and abroad. 

As distribution technology becomes increasingly fragmented and sophisticated, we lead the way in analyzing and advising on numerous issues regarding the use and licensing of patented technologies in the data streaming, content delivery networks, data compression and encryption, data redundancy, mass data storage, security applications, anti-SPAM techniques and digital media fields.

We are also recognized as leaders in the rapidly evolving and changing field of online and digital copyrights, counseling our clients regarding copyright enforcement and piracy issues, social media issues, as well as matters under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) including filing and responding to take down notices, establishing online enforcement strategies and policies, and compliance with the DMCA’s safe harbor provisions.
