Partner Aaron Moss Named to Daily Journal “Top Intellectual Property Lawyers 2021” ListApril 21, 2021 – Press Release
Greenberg Glusker is pleased to announce that Partner Aaron Moss has been named by the Daily Journal to its list of “Top Intellectual Property Lawyers 2021”, recognizing his work on recent significant cases impacting intellectual property. Aaron was selected from hundreds of nominees submitted throughout the state.
Aaron Moss, chair of Greenberg Glusker’s Litigation Department, represents owners and users of creative content and litigates high-profile copyright and trademark actions for both plaintiffs and defendants, including studios, independent distributors, production companies, video game publishers, toy companies, apparel manufacturers, technology firms and individuals.
The Daily Journal noted Aaron's recent blog launch, Copyright Lately, and the following significant matters:
- Successfully defended Discovery Communications, LLC against a lawsuit seeking to prevent the network from broadcasting “The Lost Lincoln,” a documentary concerning a previously undiscovered photograph taken of the president after he was shot in 1866. After Discovery demonstrated that enjoining the documentary would constitute an unconstitutional “prior restraint” in violation of the First Amendment, the court denied the plaintiffs' application for a temporary restraining order, allowing the program to be aired.
- Obtained complete defense in three related proceedings on behalf of writer-director Rian Johnson (Knives Out, Star Wars: Episode VIII–The Last Jedi) in a commission dispute with a former agent arising under California’s Talent Agencies Act.
