Fair use is one of the trickiest and most litigated issues facing copyright and trademark practitioners, particularly in connection with movies, television, and games. When clearing titles and content, one must increasingly consider whether and to what extent one can use or reference another’s brand or creative works.  Join Cooley attorneys Bobby Ghajar and Marcus Peterson for a discussion of the issue with a summary of the current state of copyright fair use law including a discussion of the recent Supreme Court Oracle v. Google decision and the 2nd Circuit Warhol decision that limited the prior Cariou case dealing with use of another’s copyrighted photographs.  We will also discuss both “classic” and “nominative” trademark fair use, and test your understanding with a quick game of fact or fiction based on some (at times, surprising) real-world examples.

This presentation will focus on the hottest workplace-related issues in sports and entertainment. A team of highly experienced employment law attorneys who regularly help employers navigate California’s ever changing employment law landscape will share practical lessons regarding handling COVID vaccination, mask, and exemption/accommodation issues related to employees and third parties, the most common wage-and-hour pitfalls among industry employers, and other notable workplace topics impacting sports and entertainment employers now and in the future.

As we approach the home stretch of 2021, attorneys from Greenberg Glusker will discuss the impact of some of the year’s most important issues affecting the entertainment industry. We will cover:

  • It’s Britney, B*tch…The precedent-making impact of the role of media and entertainment on conservatorship law in California
  • College Athletes Cashing In: The impact of NCAA v. Alston on name, image and likeness regulations around the country
  • The “Phillie Phanatic” copyright termination case and the extent to which the “derivative works exception” may be used to avoid the effects of copyright termination
  • Developments in online marketplace liability – the Redbubble case study
  • Starstruck in Court: Implications of Chamber of Commerce v. Bonta (prohibits requiring employees to arbitrate) in the context of entertainment litigation
