Over 24 years of experience in intellectual property, publishing and literary property law.

Jessica R. Friedman offers 24 years of experience in the copyright, trademark, licensing, publishing, Internet/new media, and advertising/marketing practice areas. Her clients include digital music, media research, and publishing companies, a national non-profit organization, and individual authors who want an alternative to big-firm rates and fee structures and individual attention.

Ms. Friedman's clients include technology, publishing, e-commerce and entertainment companies as well as individual authors. Among the matters she handles are agreements concerning copyright ownership, use and transfer, such as software development and licensing agreements, content licenses in all media, publishing agreements for authors and small publishers and collaboration agreements for co-authors; Web site development agreements and terms of use; fair use analyses; domestic and international trademark clearance, prosecution, licensing, and policing; joint venture and joint development agreements, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions; direct marketing matters, such as compliance with advertising, CAN-SPAM and fax laws; pre-publication review of manuscripts for libel and other legal issues; and matters related to the rights of privacy and publicity. In an earlier life as a litigation associate, she represented clients in copyright and trademark infringement litigation, including the plaintiffs in Childress v. Taylor, 945 F.2d 500 (2d Cir. 1991) (joint works) and Branch v. Ogilvy & Mather, 16 U.S.P.Q. 2d 1179 (S.D.N.Y. 1990) (total look and feel), and defendant Houghton Mifflin in Eisen, Durwood & Co., Inc. v. Tolkien, 794 F. Supp. 85 (S.D.N.Y. 1992), aff'd, 990 F.2d 623 (2d Cir. 1993), which held that the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy had not fallen into the public domain in the United States. Since January 2005, she also has served as General Counsel to Jobson Healthcare Information LLC (www.jhihealth.com), a healthcare communications company.

Ms. Friedman has lectured and chaired panels on intellectual property, publishing and new media issues in various venues, including PLI; the New York City Bar Association, where for several years she chaired the panel on Current Developments in Copyright Law; New York University School of Law; and the New York Technology Council (formerly the New York Software Industry Association) She also has written many articles on copyright, trademark and other intellectual property matters.
