Announcing Copyright Litigation Handbook, 2012-2013 Edition


I am pleased to forward information on my published title, Copyright Litigation Handbook, 2012-2013 ed.  This handy, portable desktop volume is a comprehensive guide to copyright litigation from pre-litigation practices including evaluating claims, interviewing clients, working with the U.S. Copyright Office to drafting cease and desist letters and choosing the correct forum and claims, together with case law related to seizures, bonds and related practice. Copyright Litigation Handbook, 2012- 2013 ed guides you through the process of filing acomplaint, taking a case to trial, and obtaining judgments and attorneys fees. The New York Law Journal called it “an indispensable guide”.  No other publication covers this intersection of the Copyright Act with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  It contains case citations and practical tips related to motion practice, pre-trial and trial procedural tips, checklists and forms.  Appendices include the entire Copyright Act, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence. Complete information regarding Copyright Litigation Handbook, 2012-2013 ed. is available through the link provided below. Since its first publication in 2006, this work has almost doubled in size and is updated annually.  I hope that beginners will find guidance and that experts will find it a useful time-saver.
