Lex Machina Launches Legal Analytics for Trademark and Copyright
Extends data-driven insights to new practice areas
Menlo Park, CA, March 31, 2015 – Lex Machina announced today the launch of Legal Analytics® for trademark and copyright cases, affording lawyers in these specialties for the first time ever, insights into the behavior of district court judges, opposing parties, and opposing counsel, enabling them to gain competitive advantage in trademark and copyright litigation.
“Trademarks and copyrights are both fundamental aspects and significant contributors to the overall success of a company. It’s vital for general counsel and lawyers to inform their strategy with quantifiable insights in case timing, resolutions, damages, findings, damages and remedies,” said Josh Becker, Lex Machina CEO.
The latest extension of Lex Machina’s award-winning Legal Analytics gives users immediate insights into Lanham Act claims, which include trademark/trade dress infringement, trademark/trade dress dilution, unfair competition (such as false designation of origin and false advertising), and cybersquatting; and DMCA claims. Companies can conduct competitive analysis and gain intelligence on how judges behave to determine the best strategy for securing injunctions, recovering attorneys’ fees, and protecting and managing their trademark and copyright portfolios.
“With the power of Legal Analytics, companies are able to understand the other party and craft winning IP strategy,” said Ian Ballon, IP Litigator at Greenberg Traurig LLP. “Legal Analytics will prove to be an invaluable tool in advising my clients on how to best position copyright, trademark and patent cases in litigation.”
