Trademark and Copyright Practice

BSKB trademark law and copyright law attorneys counsel clients in the selection, adoption, registration and enforcement of their trademark and trade dress rights. The firm files and prosecutes hundreds of federal, state, and foreign trademark applications each year. BSKB also conducts trademark availability searches and provides trademark-monitoring services of third-party trademark use. BSKB counsels clients on copyright law issues in a wide variety of fields, from computer software to publishing. BSKB has developed strong relationships with foreign counsel to ensure that our clients' rights are protected. BSKB trademark law and copyright law attorneys are licensing experts yet also offer substantial litigation expertise, both in administrative proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Copyright Office, and in civil litigation.

Our intellectual property lawyers frequently conduct and participate in seminars and conferences for intellectual property associations, trade associations and within the private sector on recent developments in trademark and copyright practice. BSKB copyright law and trademark law attorneys are also active in various trademark associations, holding positions in the International Trademark Association (INTA), the Licensing Executives Society and state and local bar associations. The firm keeps on top of legal, policy and practice developments that may impact our clients. We are committed to sharing this information with our clients through our annual U.S. Trademark Practice Seminar held each spring. This week-long course provides attendees with practical information on selecting, adopting, enhancing and enforcing their trademarks. Our newsletter also keeps clients up-to-date on legal and commercial implications of trademark prosecution.

Through its investment in educational and informational resources, BSKB's trademark law and copyright law practice has created a strong relationship with its clients and is able to better understand and serve their needs.
