Copyright law claims filed against Spotify once again

This is the digital age, and many people here in California and elsewhere prefer to purchase, view and store their entertainment electronically. For this reason, music-streaming services such as Spotify are widely popular these days. The problem is that entertainment companies claim that this service routinely violates copyright law.

Creating a mediation statement in a patent law dispute

For many reasons, it would more than likely be advantageous for parties to a dispute to stay out of a California courtroom. If that is the preferred course of action for parties involved in a patent law dispute, then mediation could provide the desired results.

If the licensee fails to make the agreed upon payments, intellectual property litigation could ensue.
