Eric A. Prager

Prager Eric

Eric Prager helps clients develop and execute business strategies involving intellectual property (IP) and technology, especially in advertising, digital media, and software. Over more than 30 years, he has developed “chief IP counsel” experience, providing strategic counseling, development of IP portfolios, due diligence of IP assets, and sophisticated licensing and agreement work. Eric also litigates copyright, false advertising, patent, trademark, and trade secret cases in courts around the country. His cross-disciplinary skill set is particularly helpful to clients facing challenges at the intersection of various IP rights and applying the law to new technologies, such as generative artificial intelligence (AI).

Eric assisted in drafting several copyright treaties for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a specialized agency of the United Nations, including the WIPO Copyright Treaty, the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, and a proposed treaty on the protection of databases.  He also assisted in the development of the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) as a member of the Intellectual Property Constituency of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).  Eric has served on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Public Advisory Committee for Trademark Affairs, which advises the USPTO on concerns of trademark owners and the practicing bar.  In addition, he serves as an adjunct professor at Fordham Law School and has authored numerous articles on a variety of subjects in intellectual property law. Two U.S. Courts of Appeals cited one of his articles on trademark dilution, and the government relied upon the article in its briefing to the U.S. Supreme Court, in the Victoria’s Secret case, 537 U.S. 418 (2003).
