SLG’s software services comprise four (4) main integrated areas:
HIGH STAKES STRATEGIC COUNSELING
We advise our clients on how to best protect against the theft of software and related intellectual property by former employees, contractors, and competitors, among others. Clients also call on SLG to provide high stakes crisis advice to control damage and pursue and punish infringers for the theft of software and related intellectual property.
SLG also guides software clients on how to maximize accounts receivable collections from deadbeat customers using the power of registered U.S. Copyrights, coupled with NDA’s, EULA’s, and other commercial agreements that condition the continued use of customer software on the timely payment of license fees, maintenance fees, warranty fees, and/or renewal fees.
SLG is adept at providing software copyright registration services for our clients with the U.S. Copyright Office, including fast track and standard track applications and supporting actions. Software Copyright registration is an essential first step toward protecting these important assets. SLG’s services are fast and affordable.
With registration, copyright owners have a wealth of available protection and enforcement tools using the might of the U.S. Copyright Act. Without registration, remedies are extremely limited. Register your software today with SLG to maximize your company’s intellectual property protection.
SLG’s enforcement services include pursuing infringers aggressively to halt infringement of client software and to procure compensation for our clients. In many cases, pursuing infringers with our client’s Copyright Registation Certificates in hand, leads to a prompt end to the infringement without litigation.
In certain situations, litigation is the only effective solution for Software Copyright infringement. When urgent litigation action is needed, clients call on SLG’s copyright litigators to pursue infringers and make them pay for their unlawful conduct.
The available remedies under the U.S. Copyright Act include: (i) temporary restraining orders, (ii) preliminary injunctions; (iii) siezure of goods containing infringing software; (iv) blocking foreign-made infringing goods from entering the U.S.; (v) statutory damages of up to $150,000 per infringed work (or actual damages); and (vi) the reimbursement of our clients’ attorneys fees.
