Have data breaches made protecting trade secrets and intellectual property more difficult? Yes. The focus of reporting on data breaches has been on the theft of personally identifiable information — and rightly so — but companies are also being targeted by hackers looking to steal valuable intellectual property assets. It’s an unfortunate reality of the business world today and one that is likely to be with us for a long time.


Which of your cases has been the most memo- rable? I filed a complaint on behalf of the estate of a nationally known shock-rock band leader regarding the unauthorized use of its intellectual property. The suit was reported in a host of national publications, including Rolling Stone, The Washington Post and New York Daily News, among others. I was inun- dated by calls from reporters almost immediately after the filing. It also had an interesting set of facts that I will not forget anytime soon.
