Copyright Law and Litigation – Annual Review
The last year has seen many exciting copyright and entertainment cases in the litigation arena. Four experienced litigators who have litigated extensively in the music industry examined some of the high profile cases (e.g., the Blurred Lines appeal, Estate of Barre v Beyoncé, Estate of Jimmy Smith V. Drake, etc.), as much for their results as to highlight the parties' litigation strategies. From substantial similarity issues and developments in the "fair use" defense in music sampling cases, to courts' increasing readiness to resolve cases in early dispositive motion practice, the panel also looked at the practical effects and implications of these cases and trends for the industry going forward.
