Digital Rights Management Expert Witnesses
Digital rights management expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in intellectual property law, computer science, and/or economic damages. Depending on the specifics of a case, specialists such as a software expert, cybersecurity expert, digital media technology expert, or music industry expert may be needed to support a case.
An intellectual property protection program stops others from using an owner’s intellectual property (e.g., trademark infringement, trade secret, patent infringement, copyright infringement) without a licensing agreement. Copyright law protects authors of original creations, and digital rights management (DRM) technologies control the use and distribution of copyrighted works (i.e., software and digital multimedia content), as well as systems within devices that enforce these policies.
Litigation support by a digital rights management expert witness could include reverse engineering, expert report preparation, expert opinion, depositions, and/or expert testimony in court. An economic damages expert could be called upon to provide lost profits and damages calculations. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may require a seasoned expert witness. In addition, counsel may seek a DRM expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
