Domain name disputes.

Ioppolo Law Group handles all forms of domain name disputes, including cybersquatting, typo-squatting, and other domain-based trademark infringement. We handle these disputes through ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, or the federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, depending on the circumstances and the relief sought.

Our attorneys are particularly experienced in dealing with the unique laws affecting copyright and trademark infringements on the Internet. Such experience includes:

  • Counseling clients regarding, and handling disputes involving, secondary liability of Internet intermediaries under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act; and
  • Preparing and responding to takedown notices issued pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Deceptive advertising claims by competitors.

With respect to false or deceptive advertising by a competitor, Ioppolo Law Group makes and defends challenges before the National Advertising Division and the National Advertising Review Board, as well as engages in private litigation to address false or deceptive advertising under the Lanham Act. If a competitor engages in false and deceptive advertising, remedies may be available under federal law, including injunctive relief, disgorgement of profits, and monetary damages to fund corrective marketing.

Trade Secrets.

Ioppolo Law Group advises its clients on the best procedures for protecting trade secrets, and routinely drafts non-competition agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and intellectual property development agreements for its clients. We also represent our clients in federal and state courts to protect against the misappropriation of trade secrets.
