Description:
Ray Dowd, author of West’s acclaimed Copyright Litigation Handbook and a partner in Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP in New York City will take us through the ethical pitfalls facing legal practitioners tackling copyright litigation.   Appropriate for inhouse counsel, and private practitioners both seasoned and novice. 
Professional responsibility issues arise early in copyright litigation.   

The disciplinary rules of each jurisdiction impose a duty of professional competence.  The combination of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requiring attorneys to investigate and warrant the viability of claims and defenses with the Copyright Act’s potential awards of attorneys fees as costs to the prevailing party, make the attorney litigating copyright claims a potential target throughout the litigation.  In this age of sanctions being imposed on copyright trolls and overaggressive copyright enforcement, what are the ethical takeaways attorneys representing content owners and distributors?  Is it a breach of ethics to send a cease-and-desist letter to a jurisdiction in which an attorney is not admitted?  Has your client registered materials with the Copyright Office you need to support your claims or defenses? 

Dowd, a seasoned litigator, takes us through a pre-flight litigation checklist designed to avoid sanctions in copyright cases.  What are your ethical obligations?    Copyright litigation has exploded as the world has become digitized.  This course will assist you in understanding how to avoid potential minefields. 
 
The New York Law Journal called Dowd’s Copyright Litigation Handbook “an indispensable guide and supplement to the ins and outs of copyright litigation”.   Join us for a lively session on a hot topic.   For more information on Copyright Litigation Handbook 2018-2019 ed, please visit the Thomson Reuters Westlaw Store at https://store.legal.thomsonreuters.com/law-products/Practice-Materials/Copyright-Litigation-Handbook-2018-2019-ed/p/105799095
