This is the official homepage for Attorney Steve® – The First Name In Legal Services®.  [GENERAL OVERVIEW]

This is also the home of Copyright Watchdog® and You CLICK We DEFEND® (internet piracy lawyer).

We are a leader in the United States in software audits and licensing disputes, internet file-sharing defense, DMCA law, photo infringement, fair use, and TV and satellite signal piracy. We are a boutique law firm uniquely experienced to handle these types of cases and other copyright infringement cases including jewelry, font, book, music and video infringement!

We offer LOW FLAT RATE FEES for many cases – Unlike most law firms that may want to DRAG THINGS ON so they can send you HUGE LEGAL BILLS at the end of the case (to cover their overhead), we are different and we think differently!

What a strange, beautiful, challenging, historical trip I have been on for about 20 years now. This photo was taken at the Supreme Court of United States. For the first time in my life I was literally speechless. Just wandering through the hallowed halls of Justice learning about all the great people and brilliant minds who helped shape this unbelievably awesome loving country. Best in the world!! #BlessedLife#SupremeCourt #LovingLaw.


Our practice areas center around the following areas:

1. Software audits and licensing disputes - We are a leader in the United States in handling software audit disputes involving powerhouse software companies and compliance trade organizations such as:

We may also be able to help with IBM, Oracle, VM Ware, SAP, Informatica and other software companies.  If you received a letter demanding an audit of your computer networks, laptops, and servers contact us for a free consultation.  We offer low flat rate fees that many companies, both large and small, have enjoyed over the years.  In this area of law, there is simple no substitute for experience.

2. Federal Copyright Litigation

We also handle a variety of copyright infringement cases (both for rights holder Plaintiff and defending against allegations of willful copyright infringement).  Cases can involve any copyrighted content such as:

Submit your case through our online contact form or contact us at (877) 276-5084 for more information.

3. P2P File Sharing - Torrent Defense

Many people have been on the wrong side of a "file sharing lawsuit" demanding thousands of dollars for the illegal sharing of videos online.  Two of the major filers of federal court lawsuits in this area are Strike 3 Holdings, LLC, and Malibu Media.  These companies together have filed THOUSANDS of lawsuits clogging the federal courts seeking settlements (what many people refer to "shame settlements" with what some judges refer to as "copyright trolls.").

We have vast experience in this area of copyright law and can help our clients get their cases settled (whether through litigation or settlement), and we offer flat rate legal fees for many cases.

To learn more visit our Torrent Defense Resource Center

We can also help with other items (for both Plaintiff rights holders and Defendants) such as copyrighted software, music, video and more.  Call us for information about our contingency fee recovery program for rights holders.  Call (877) 276-5084.

Steve was beyond helpful in advising me on my company's possible issues regarding software licensing. He clearly knows his stuff. Though I hope to not need him in the future, he is absolutely our company's go-to, in any software or similar IP case going forward. And his youtube content is excellent, both in terms of usefulness and detail.

4.  Satellite and TV signal piracy / PPV theft

Our IP litigation firm has handled many cases involving allegations of copyright infringement and violation of federal cable and satellite theft statues.  We can help if you have received a letter from any of the following companies:

A word about “Super Lawyers” and Martindale Hubbell “Peer Rated”

In my honest opinion having been a lawyer for over15 years, these designations are largely not much more than creative marketing. When I beat a “Super Lawyer” in a case (to me, a rather child-like title apparently dummied down for the lowest common denominator) it's not like the SuperLawyer calls the company and says “hey, this guy is really good, he just beat me in a big case you might want to include him in the directory.”  To me, there are other factors to look for in hiring the right law firm including the following:

1. Passionate 

2.  Honesty & Integrity

3.  Proven track record of success (experience)

4.  Your personalities and goals are aligned with your counsel

5.  Affordable / Cost-effective counsel
