Practice/Organization Description

Intellectual property lawyer. Although I really love litigating trademark, trade dress, and copyright cases, I enjoy more counseling clients about how to protect their rights without having to resort to litigation. My practice involves a lot of licensing and trademark prosecution as well. Most of all I love applying intellectual property law to new media as they are developed. For example, I was one of the first trademark lawyers to publish articles about applying Lanham Act priciples to the Internet in areas such as pop-up and banner advertising, search engine keyword programs, and "Dawn Donut" justiciablity/ripeness/standing issues.
