Litigation Attorney Firm Adli Law Group Continues Patent Troll Battle

Gift card suit outcome shows that trolls can be defeated with strong legal representation.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- You needn't be an intellectual property (IP) litigation attorney to know that non-practicing entities, popularly known as patent trolls, represent a genuine threat to productive companies and the very practice of innovation; you do, however, need the help of expert litigators should you or your company be the subject of a potentially very costly troll lawsuit. As the law firm for an outstanding patent attorney Los Angeles companies and individuals trust, Adli Law Group P.C. is a leader in protecting organizations from shell companies whose only means of revenue is to bring infringement lawsuits against companies who are typically operating in good faith that they are obeying copyright and patent law. Led by Dr. Dariush Adli, a top IP attorney with a strong scientific and technological background, as well as a leading entertainment lawyer Los Angeles film, television, and music professionals turn to first when help is required, Adli Law Group is ready to help besieged companies use the full extent of the law to protect themselves.

A recent decision in favor of Gap Inc. against a non-practicing entity called Alexsam Inc. is a good example of kind of predatory misuse of the law these companies embody. The alleged patent troll company sued the ubiquitous clothing retailer for the methods by which it was adding funds to gift cards and then subtracting it at the point of sale later on, saying they constituted infringement. Adding to the difficulty for the Gap, gift cards are heavily regulated by the government to protect against money laundering and other malfeasance, so a change in the basic systems needed to use the cards could be extremely expensive. A jury found in favor of the Gap, but a number of similar cases are pending involving some of the nation's largest retailers. In one instance, Best Buy chose to settle out of court for an unknown sum of money.

Clearly, fighting non-practicing entities can require first rate IP legal talent for a company of any size. Adli Law Group is uniquely well prepared to handle all types of copyright and patent infringement cases no matter how highly technical. Prior to starting his legal career, Dr. Adli's background included earning a doctorate in Engineering Physics. His legal work has involved an enormous number of highly detailed and often extremely complex IP cases involving fields as diverse as semiconductors, computer/network architecture, software, and entertainment. When patent trolls attack, he and his outstanding legal staff are the first line of defense for companies of all sizes.

If you or your company is in need of the legal counsel – either because of lawsuits from a non-practicing entity or some other type of legal issue – please contact the Los Angeles office of Adli Law Group, P.C. today at 800-817-2949.
