Copyright infringement lawsuit filed against DJ Marshmello

The music industry is one that involves a great deal of creativity. As a result, most musicians do not want their work unjustly used and seek copyright protections to avoid such outcomes. Still, some musical artists may find that others have used their work or created works similar to theirs, and copyright infringement lawsuits could result.

Another type of intellectual property could face more lawsuits

Lawsuits filed by patent trolls have been the bane of many companies over the years. The problem became so extensive that in 2016, Congress passed the Defense of Trade Secrets Act in an attempt to stem the flow of these lawsuits in order to allow them into federal court since they were ordinarily filed in state courts, including those here in New York. Unfortunately, it now appears that this opened up this type of intellectual property to patent-troll type lawsuits.
