Nancy Rubner Frandsen focuses her practice on trademarks, copyrights, unfair competition, trade dress, cyberpiracy, and domain name disputes. For over 20 years, Nancy has guided clients not only through the core areas of trademark and copyright clearance, worldwide registration, maintenance, and enforcement before the federal courts and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, but also through the more complex areas of the practice, including dilution, fair use, comparative advertising, and the DMCA. Nancy's in-depth knowledge of her clients' businesses, from individual entrepreneurs to major corporations, has enabled her to support and advance their unique objectives and goals.
Nancy is co-author of What the General Practitioner Should Know About Trademarks and Copyrights (6th Ed), published by ALI-ABA. Other published articles have appeared in both local and national publications on subjects such as trademark searching, product configuration in the Third Circuit, the federal right to copy, bad faith litigation, copyright remedies, and the protection of nonverbal rights under trademark and unfair competition law. She has also lectured on trademarks and trade dress for the American Law Institute, Pennsylvania Bar Institute, Temple University, and the Philadelphia Intellectual Property Law Association.
