Navigating Your Company Through a World of Big Copyright Damages: An Insider’s Look
In a world where movies, television, music, books, online content and other media comprise the most valuable assets owned by many companies and individuals, the risks and rewards of copyright infringement have never been higher. Large copyright damage awards are making headlines, with songwriters, photographers, and other rights holders winning multimillion dollar judgments against alleged infringers. In many cases the winners also received their attorneys' fees.
The prospect of dealing with copyright claims in this climate raises critical questions for media and technology companies, brands, agencies, producers, authors, publishers, songwriters, insurers and other people and companies that work with copyrighted content. These questions include:
- What mistakes lead to copyright infringement?
- How can you minimize the risk of copyright infringement suits?
- What are the most effective strategies to address a claim for infringement and avoid litigation?
- When should you settle an infringement claim and how much should you pay?
- How can you limit your exposure to damages, profit, statutory and attorneys' fee awards?
For more than 25 years, Frankfurt Kurnit has been on the frontlines of many of the most closely watched copyright, advertising, entertainment and media-related litigations, as well as in the trenches dealing with copyright and other disputes that never see the light of day.
At this informative presentation designed for both attorneys and non-attorneys, Frankfurt Kurnit's Maura Wogan, Edward Rosenthal, and Jeremy Goldman will explore some of the key laws, cases and trends involving copyright remedies and provide an insiders' view of the risk-mitigation tactics, legal strategies and practical approaches that they have used to help their clients navigate through difficult copyright claims.
This program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board for a maximum of 1.0 credit hours in Areas of Professional Practice.
