On August 16, 2011, Oxford University Press, USA released its new treatise, Entertainment Litigation. Partner Tom J. Ferber and Senior Counsel Stephen F. Huff, both members of Pryor Cashman’s Litigation and Entertainment, Media and Communications Groups, were contributing authors to the new publication.
Entertainment Litigation provides in-depth discussion and analysis of the substantive law regarding the subjects that most frequently arise in entertainment litigation – such as copyright infringement, idea misappropriation, right of publicity, and defamation, among others – and provides guidelines, tips and recommendations on litigating in these areas, on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. The book also addresses talent agency law, the stalking and harassment of celebrities, insurance law and other areas of entertainment litigation under New York, California, and other law.
Ferber and Huff, with the assistance of Partners William Charron, Steven Rabinowitz and Howard Siegel and Associates Ross Bagley, Bryan Mohler and Elizabeth Warner, contributed the chapter on New York Law and Procedure.
According to John Schulman, former General Counsel of Warner Bros., “Entertainment Litigation is written by leading litigators experienced in the entertainment industry. As general counsel of one of the studios, I hired a number of them and battled a few others. They know of what they write; they set it forth clearly, enjoyably, and helpfully – for both the experienced and the neophyte.”
