Case Study

Successful Infringement Lawsuit for Video Game Distributor

A well-known third-party video game company was about to start distributing a top-selling video game—in direct violation of our client’s exclusive distribution agreement with the game’s manufacturer. We immediately filed a request for an emergency temporary restraining order (TRO) and infringement lawsuit on behalf of the client.

  • Successful TRO

  • Damages paid in full

Integrity & Attention to Detail

“My firm Freedom National has been working with Barry Seaton for over a decade and his integrity and punctuality are the best of any law firm that I have seen in my 30 years of experience being self-employed. His attention to detail and truly caring about his clients is one of his qualities that I admire the most! I have referred him and will continue to refer him to anyone that could use his services!”

We needed a versatile attorney

“I have had the privilege of working with Barry on over 100 contracts. We needed a versatile attorney who understood product development, intellectual property rights, publishing and risk management. This was a very complex job that required flexibility and sound judgment. The cookie cutter approach would not have worked in this dynamic, ever changing environment. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry to any company involved in any aspect of the entertainment or games business.”
