Copying inventions, images, music and other intellectual property is harmful not only to the property owner, but also to the system as a whole because ultimately it erodes the incentive to innovate.
STAMFORD, CT (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
One of the nation's top intellectual property litigators, attorney Eric Osterberg, has opened a new law firm in Stamford, CT. Specializing in protecting businesses from copyright, trademark and patent infringement as well as other intellectual property abuses, Osterberg LLC formed in the spring of 2012.
Osterberg has been a defender of intellectual property rights for nearly three decades and has participated in and won a number of high-profile cases, most notably in the music, media and technology industries. He is a recognized author in the intellectual property field. His treatise, Substantial Similarity in Copyright Law, is now in its ninth year as part of the Practising Law Institute’s roster of practitioner guides.
Osterberg commented on the growing importance of intellectual property law, especially in today's Internet and social media-driven world stating, "While today's technology tools enable innovation like never before, they also set a stage for more potential hazards and abuse. Copying inventions, images, music and other intellectual property is harmful not only to the property owner, but also to the system as a whole because ultimately it erodes the incentive to innovate."
Osterberg represents clients throughout the U.S., particularly in the Northeast region. Current and past intellectual property clients include patent and trademark owners and users in a variety of industries including: music publishers, songwriters, collective licensing societies, record companies, print publishers and authors, motion picture studios, television and motion picture producers, advertising agencies, Internet service and telecommunications providers, and clothing designers and manufacturers.
Osterberg began his career in New York City with his father in 1993 at the intellectual property boutique Abeles Clark Osterberg & Prager. Later, Eric worked in the New York City offices of two large firms where he continued focusing on intellectual property litigation, licensing and counseling. Osterberg moved his principal office to Stamford in 2005 so that he could be closer to his home in Wilton, CT, yet still easily reach his clients and the federal courthouses in New York City. Eventually, he started his own firm in Stamford, which he managed until he joined Fox Rothschild in 2009, and then formed Osterberg LLC in the spring of 2012.
Osterberg LLC is located at 1266 East Main Street, Suite 700R in Stamford, CT. For more information go to http://www.osterbergllc.com or call 203-539-6135.
