Aaron Moss, Greenberg Glusker’s Litigation Chair & Partner, shared his commentary with Deadline regarding Senator Hawley's proposed bill that would potentially end Disney's copyright extensions. Hawley believes Disney's lengthy copyright term gives the corporation too much power over its intellectual property. However, experts argue Hawley's bill goes against the brand's legal rights.


Aaron Moss of Greenberg Glusker wrote that Hawley’s bill was “performative theater,” likely unconstitutional, yet treated in some of the reporting on it as a “legitimate attempt to legislate.”
