Lewis & Lin’s Internet Lawyers serve our clients with all of their legal needs. Whether it’s incorporating a business, drafting Terms of Use, registering a Trademark or Copyright, or safeguarding your Domain Name, we offer experienced and knowledgeable attorneys to assist you in running and protecting your online business.

Website Documents

If you do business online, you need to take steps to protect yourself and your website. By requiring your users to agree to a Terms of Use and by establishing a fair and accurate Privacy Policy, you can protect your online business from many legal liabilities. We offer flat fee rates for preparing a Terms of Use and Privacy Policy customized for your website.  If applicable, we will guide you through the DMCA “safe harbor” program to help protect your online business from liability for potentially infringing content or graphics that may be posted by your website’s users.

Domain Name Protection and Purchase/Sale Advice

By having a domain name management plan in place, we can save you costs and legal headaches by helping to prevent third parties from registering your brands online in key top-level domains. We can also recommend strategies that will help you to drive more traffic to your websites while protecting your trademarks online.  In the event that a third party incorporates your trademarks into its domain names, we are experienced at resolving these types of disputes. Lewis & Lin’s Internet attorneys also offer domain name portfolio audit services to help you identify and manage potential trademark issues, and can advise you on how to minimize the risk of becoming the subject to a dispute.

Website Disputes

Lewis & Lin’s Internet lawyers are experienced at drafting and filing DMCA copyright infringement notices, handling phishing complaints, filing and responding to UDRP proceedings with the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and, when necessary, litigating these disputes in court under the Anti-cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. Our experienced Internet attorneys understand the key factual elements and arguments needed to succeed in online disputes, and know what tools to use in making a thorough investigation of any claim.  We have been working with domain name disputes since the earliest days of the UDRP and ACPA, and have achieved successful results for numerous clients on both sides of the dispute.

Online Licensing and Internet Agreements

Lewis & Lin represents domain name registrars, search engines, social networking sites and various other online businesses in connection with the drafting and review of content and technology licensing agreements, outsourcing agreements, co-branding agreements, marketing and advertising agreements, and other Internet agreements. We have years of experience preparing all forms of domain name agreements (purchase and sale contracts, finder fee agreements, complex license/lease provisions) and can provide you with the most effective, reliable advice for your business.
