About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

After working at two software companies in Austin, Texas, John began law school in 2005 at the University of Oregon School of Law in Eugene, Oregon. During law school, John served as an associate editor for the Oregon International Review of Law and as an on-campus research assistant for two professors at the Knight Law School. Knowing the areas of law he wished to specialize in after law school, John focused his legal studies on intellectual property, business law, and computer law.

Current areas of focus involve copyright and trademark law including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in addition to cyber law matters including domain squatting issues, cease and desist letters, and disputes over virtual property. John has sent countless DMCA takedown notices and secured numerous federal subpoenas on behalf of his clients, and is efficient in removing infringing content hosted online.


Moreover, John provided intellectual property legal assistance during the development of a multi-million dollar software product released in 2010, including creation of the DMCA policy, assistance with the End-User License Agreement, and Privacy Policy. In 2011, John successfully defended several clients in Righthaven and other copyright litigation suits.

As a Colorado patent attorney, John also has experience addressing office actions and responses for software, nanotechnology, and mechanical patents on both the federal and international level. John has drafted the claims and specifications for several pending nanotechnology and mechanical patents. For corporate clients, John has drafted End-User License Agreements, provided international patent strategy advice, addressed trademark infringement claims, copyright assignment questions, non-disclosure agreements, licensing valuation, and more.

John Arsenault represents plaintiffs and defendants as an intellectual property attorney in any state or federal matters involving infringement or licensing issues. John's previous background in the software industry places him in a unique position to accurately and efficiently answer intellectual property and computer law questions for clients as both an expert in technology and as an IP attorney.

DBC Case
John was absolutely wonderful and amazingly helpful with everything. He was extremely knowledgeable with everything that had to do with my case and finished everything within 4 days. He was extremely reasonable financially and got me the lowest settlement he could.

Excellent attorney - Malibu Media v John Doe
Mr. Arsenault represented me in a John Doe claim made by Malibu Media in 2013. He did a great job and I want to pass on my highest recommendation. He worked for a fair fee, negotiated a settlement before my name was released, and was overall very pleasant to work with. The whole system isn't fair, but if you are in Colorado and hit by a John Doe suit, John Arsenault is a great option.

A Hero in my books!
Mr. John Arsenault took my copy infringement case and literally saved the shirt off my back! He made me feel as though everything would work out! He emailed me back almost immediately every time I had questions! He really had my back for a silly and stupid mistake I made opening up an email! I wasn't thinking, but retaining Mr. John Arsenault was the smartest thing I did! He negotiated the $4000.00 suit against me in half and got a Dismissal With Prejudice-meaning they cannot come back after me for more money! That was such a weight off my shoulders! I cannot tell you the relief I felt when John emailed me the info. I promise if you have any copyright infringement, Mr. Arsenault is the Laywer for you. His retaining fee was fair and affordable for me! It was worth it!! If I ever need a Lawyer for anything...Mr. Arsenault would be my 1st and only choice and I trust him 100%! Thank You Mr. John Arsenault! You are truly my savior!
