Copyright Defense Lawyers

From time to time I get requests from copyright infringement defense lawyers who ask if I would add a link to their site.  If you are an attorney wishing to add your name/firm to the list, please contact me.  Note: I reserve the right to add or remove these listings as I see fit.

I’m not making any recommendation to use these lawyers, firms, or to hire an attorney at all.  That should be your decision, as it is highly personal and a serious matter.  Understand that lawyers are not generally cheap, but that it may also be in your best interest.  As many of the copyright defense attorneys now have more experience with these case, the fees for some have started to drop.  The Trolls and copyright owners have set their settlement fee schedule at a level they believe is under the cost you will pay a defense attorney – (screenshot).  One place to start for names of lawyers and firm for such matters is the EFF Subpoena Defense Resource page.
