Anne Hocking provides clients advice on copyright registration, recordal, international protection of copyright fair use and DMCA procedures. In 2016 she won a six figure settlement against a Hollywood star and a major publishing house for infringement of her client’s book within 3 weeks of filing suit. She prosecutes numerous infringements across various platforms. She uses copyright along with trade dress protection for her fashion clients.

She  prosecutes trademarks worldwide, and litigates trademark infringements in the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and federal District Court, winning a six figure settlement agreement in a trademark infringement action, along with cancellation of the opponent’s mark. An Adjunct Professor of copyright and trademark law for nearly 30 years, she also speaks and writes on copyright and trademark developments.

Her most recent presentation was on fair use, focusing on the Madonna sampling and Blurred Lines copyright infringement cases and a trademark article on trade dress protection for footwear based on the International Louboutin enforcement of its “red soles” trademark.
