Digital Media

The explosion of digital media has given rise to a vast variety of intellectual property disputes and issues. Internet and information technology has affected the daily lives of all of us. Whether a young start-up company with nothing but an idea or an established multinational powerhouse, each new innovation brings with it tremendous potential rewards, but also hides risks for the unwary. Risk management and exploitation of the digital assets are at the core of our services in this sector.

The Firm focuses on matters relating to the development and distribution of digital media and related technology in Canada and abroad. We can represent companies whose business requires digital media, the Internet and e-commerce solutions in response to the rapidly changing technological landscape. We can assist our clients  in matters relating to the media and high-tech industries, including the streaming and downloading of audio and video material. Our advice is not limited to Canada alone: we recognize the inherently international nature of the Internet and using associates in other jurisdictions we can offer a global perspective on the relevant issues and their resolution.

Our strategies are tailored to the individual needs of each client, with an emphasis on efficiency and cost-effective use of resources. We believe strongly that effective use of technology enables us to serve our clients better and to conserve their financial resources. Technology is not an end in itself, but rather a tool that, when properly used, can bring significant efficiency to the delivery of legal services. Our philosophy is to apply our significant technology resources to our clients' needs in a cost-effective way that contributes value to our clients' pursuit of their objectives.

A niche status and use of technology enable us to provide high quality, cost effective solutions to  a broad range of companies in digital media: from existing corporations to rapid-growth start ups; from web designers to Internet trade associations; from Internet service providers to providers of high-level Internet support software. We use our skills and experience to judge the balance between legal and commercial risk and deliver our services promptly and economically. The result is an effective, solution focused approach that helps our clients to expand their businesses. Trademark representation ranges from advising both domestic and foreign companies prior to development and use of a trademark, to registration with the United States Patent and Trademark office and Canadian Intellectual Property Office, protection of trademarks abroad, and trademark litigation.
