DisputeSoft has experience with disputes involving defamation claims and licensing compliance in the publishing industry.

    As newspaper, magazine, and print media publishing companies move away from paper-based products and embrace the rise of digital media platforms, publishing software systems become the primary tools for disseminating printed materials. Publishing companies utilize systems such as Desktop Publishing Software (DPS), Content Management Systems (CMS), and Digital Publishing Software to efficiently produce and manage digital media content for their readers.

    Publishing industry disputes may arise over false statements published online, failed implementations of publishing industry software, or licensing or ownership of publishing software. In an electronic discovery dispute involving the editorial CMS of a New York Times subsidiary, DisputeSoft experts developed an approach for identifying articles containing alleged false representations. DisputeSoft also served as a technical expert for the Los Angeles Times in connection with a software license agreement dispute regarding a publishing industry database system.
