Year in Review…So Far: A Review of Recent Entertainment Cases and Their Impact

Thankfully, we’re in the home stretch of 2020, a year which has given us a fair share of important entertainment cases in addition to everything else we’ve been dealing with. In this panel, attorneys from Greenberg Glusker will discuss the impact of some of the year’s most important decisions, including such topics as:

  • Copyright in historical facts, including “fictionalized” facts – Corbello v. Valli (“Jersey Boys” case)
  • The Ninth Circuit’s approach to early dismissal in substantial similarity cases (“The Shape of Water,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Empire” and “Inside Out”)
  • The use of IP in expressive works or commercial products – including cases involving Activision/Humvee and Jack Daniels
  • Imputed license fees in profit participation and other take-aways from the “Walking Dead” trial
  • Recent developments in employment law affecting entertainment companies – Comcast v. National Association of African-American Owned Media, Gabrielle Union v. Universal Television, Fox v. Netflix
