Intellectual Property Theft
San Francisco Copyright Infringement Attorneys
Copyright Violations and Downloading Defense
Many laws govern the protection of intellectual property. With easy access to the Internet, many individuals have been accused of theft of intellectual property. It is logistically impossible for the government to prosecute every copyright infringement or other types of intellectual property theft. However, you need legal advice to avoid being used as a scapegoat for what many individuals see as harmless downloads, but what business owners and the government see as theft.
If you have been charged with illegal downloading or other intellectual property theft, contact an experienced defense lawyer.

At the law firm of Sugarman & Cannon, our attorneys are among the few who defend people charged with online theft of intellectual property. We defend people charged with illegal downloading of music, video and text. We have observed that even though many people download material from the Internet, those who are prosecuted are often individuals and organizations with a high-speed connection that allows them to assemble large packages of electronic content.
Seek Legal Counsel Immediately … Protect Yourself
Our attorneys caution people who believe they are the target of an investigation into online copyright infringement to seek legal counsel right away. It is possible to protect yourself and avoid being charged. Even if you are charged, being prepared can make a difference in the charges, the outcome and the penalties.
