Internet & Media Law
At Hermes, Netburn, O’Connor & Spearing, P.C., our attorneys represent clients in a wide array of media-related disputes, including intellectual property enforcement, defense against claims of infringement, defamation and invasion of privacy, protection of newsroom staff and newsgathering activities as well as other complex tort and contract litigation.
Operating any business in the digital age presents new legal challenges. For media companies, whose lifeblood is providing rich, interesting and immersive content to an ever more demanding audience, navigating these legal waters presents unique and pressing challenges. Strategic thinking and risk management require us to forecast and guide our clients through developments in this ever changing area of the law. We assist our clients in planning an on-line presence and, when conflict is unavoidable, we call on our strength as trial and appellate counsel to work toward a successful end to the dispute.
In this environment, it takes more than cleverly drafted terms of service on a website to ensure adequate protection. The attorneys of Hermes, Netburn, O’Connor & Spearing, P.C. offer a wealth of experience in both evolving media law and complex risk management. Our extensive representation of both traditional and electronic media outlets during the formative period of internet jurisprudence has given us a unique perspective on the developing issues in the law and a special ability to provide our clients with informed legal advice and services.
