Quinn Emanuel Recognized for Role in Cutting Edge Copyright and Trademark Cases


The firm’s Copyright and Trademark practice areas, have recently been recognized in a series of articles by Law360. The firm’s victory for Vimeo in Capitol Records, LLC v. Vimeo, LLC—establishing that the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's “safe harbor” provisions shield sites like Vimeo from liability when users post videos that include pre-1972 sound recordings—was named one of the “Top Three Copyright Rulings of the Year (to date).” In addition, Fox News Network, LLC v. TVEyes, Inc., in which the firm represents media-monitoring service TVEyes, was named a “Copyright Case to Watch in the Second Half of 2016” and identified as likely to be “the next must-read ruling on the fair use doctrine.” Finally, the firm’s trademark case Pro-Football, Inc. v. Blackhorse was named one of Law360’s “Trademark Cases to Watch in the Second Half of 2016.” The case concerns whether Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act—which prohibits the registration of trademarks that “may disparage”—is unconstitutional under the First Amendment.
