- Resolution of Copyright Infringement and Contract Dispute
My client, a commercial photographer, was commissioned to take photographs for use on posters and coffee books. After reviewing the terms of the agreement, I determined that the contracting party had violated the terms of the agreement and had violated the photographer’s copyright by not providing proper attribution on the published photos. I quickly negotiated a resolution that addressed my client’s concerns.
- YouTube Take Down Notices
My client was a small international film company. Many of its films were being posted without permission on YouTube. I submitted a series of take-down requests pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and had the posts removed within a few days.
- Fair Use Opinion
Producer of online videos was developing a new project and had developed a number of rough-cuts of the project. I reviewed the material and provided guidance on what material would be considered as fair-use, and what material would need need licensing to avoid potential litigation.
