DLA Piper’s Intellectual Property and Technology practice group is among the ten largest IP practices in the US and enjoys vast global reach, with approximately 400 lawyers in nearly 50 cities in almost two dozen countries around the world.

This blog focuses on our Trademark, Copyright and Media practice, led by Ann Ford, which helps clients protect the integrity of their brands and maximize the value of their marks. Many of our clients outsource their entire trademark function to our team to establish, maintain and protect their portfolio of brands.

By managing more than 50,000 trademarks in more than 150 countries for some of the world’s most valuable brands, we’ve learned a lot about trademark, copyright and associated issues– including the emerging law governing the use and protection of intellectual property on the Internet. Our team is thoughtful, strategic and passionate about these areas of law, and we are eager to share our insights more publicly. Our experience runs the gamut – from traditional businesses to social media startup companies. This blog will review laws as they evolve and reflect on how these changes transform the practice – both for our clients and for businesses around the world.
