LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP partner Emily Evitt will be speaking on a panel of entertainment lawyers at the California Copyright Conference looking at the impact of recent copyright decisions on the music industry. The panel entitled, “Music in the Courts”, will include Freundlich Law partner Michael Kaiser, and founding principal Kenneth Freundlich as moderator. It will be held via Zoom today at 2:30 p.m. PT.
The panel will dive into the background of these recent cases, how they were litigated, and the implications of the decisions on future business. In addition, the panel will touch upon cases that are currently pending and what they may foreshadow for the future of the music industry.
“A key purpose of copyright is to encourage creativity, which many of the recent court decisions in music cases arguably have done,” said Evitt. “As more and more music cases are litigated, issues surrounding infringement and fair use will continue to be top of mind for those in the industry.”
Evitt is an experienced intellectual property litigator who works with record companies, music publishing companies, film and television studios, video game companies, and major online content providers. Her practice focuses on copyright and trademark infringement matters.
Emily Evitt is available for interviews about the broader implications of copyright litigation in the music industry.
