“Roy Gordet guided IronMind Enterprises through a series of intellectual property challenges: trade dress protection and enforcement, copyright enforcement, international trademark dispute resolution, and publishingcontract development. Roy was easy to work with and and we regarded him as a trusted and valued corporate resource.”

Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D., President


“As a trust and estate attorney, I have referred clients with copyright issues to Roy Gordet, and he has impressed me with his knowledge of copyright law and his ability to work with us on the probate or administrative issues. I also had the pleasure to attend his excellent presentation in 2009 on copyright and estate planning for the Estate Planning and Probate Section of the San Mateo County Bar Association.”

“INR (Institute for Natural Resources) is a non-profit scientific organization dedicated to research and education in the fields of science and medicine. INR is one of the nation’s largest provider of live continuing education programs, offering hundreds of live seminars yearly. The company’s associated publishing arm, Biomed, publishes a wide variety of publications related to INR’s continuing education programs. Roy Gordet was first an INR lecturer back in 1995-96 for a course for lawyers on intellectual property and unfair competition that was presented six times throughout California. The presentations were very well received. Subsequently, INR and Biomed decided to retain Roy’s services for a variety of important counseling and litigation projects over the years, with great success. Roy’s approach was also always cost-effective. I can recommend Roy’s services without reservation.”

“Roy Gordet is a top-notch attorney with a social conscience: a rare combination. I first got to know Roy when I was on the staff of the National Writers Union, and he involved himself in our electronic rights campaign and freely offered advice on legal issues — just because he was intellectually interested. Later, as an independent activist, I needed help in intervening to open the records of a sealed class action copyright settlement. Roy filed the papers, argued the case, and eventually helped me appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and settle. The information obtained in that process would be instrumental in objections to a consolidated copyright  class action that went all the way to the Supreme Court; alongside the better known Google Books case,  this one (under the name Reed Elsevier v. Muchnick) is laying important groundwork for copyright in the digital age. So I speak from an unusual base of experience when I attest to Roy Gordet’s skills and highly recommend his representation and expertise.”
