Copyright Non-Infringement Opinions

Borghese Legal, Ltd. provides complete copyright reviews and non-infringement (or infringement) opinions. The firm will analyze two works to determine the likelihood of a successful copyright infringement action should one be filed. Non-infringement opinions are often prepared when a client receives a cease and desist letter by another company and, in our opinion, no copyright infringement exists. Infringement opinions are provided when our client wants to stop a competitor from infringing an existing work and requires an attorney’s review of the alleged infringement.

In addition to providing this opinion work, the firm will negotiate with opposing companies and attorneys to resolve disputes, often without costly litigation. Whether you want to stop infringement or are accused of infringement, the firm will explore resolutions which make business sense.
